Richard Butchins is an award-winning filmmaker, artist and writer. He has created ground-breaking work across television and art platforms providing rare insight into the disabled experience. Motivated by the continual exclusion and misrepresentation of marginalised people in society, his work aims to shift dominant perspectives, seeking to amplify liminal voices above all the chatter and discourse. Through documentary and personal art practice, he attempts to convey the humanity, value, and self-determination of the disabled community on its own terms, rather than as burdens, objects of pity or inspiration porn. He has a Ph.D. by practise from the University of Kent for a study into the aesthetics of disability.
