University of Atypical launches Chris Ledger Legacy Awards in tribute to former CEO

The University of Atypical today launched The Chris Ledger Legacy Awards in memory of its much-loved former CEO who died a year ago.

The Awards, which have been funded by Unlimited and the Paul Hamlyn Foundation, recognise the major contribution Chris made to the Arts and cultural sector in Northern Ireland and especially her many initiatives to support d/Deaf, disabled, and Neurodiverse artists.

The grant scheme offers four awards of £5,000 each to support artists to continue with their practice and create new work.  The Chris Ledger Awards are open to creative practitioners from all artforms.
