Welcome to Embody

Our new Collude artist is writer Gaele Sobott. Gaele is a writer and producer and she is offering you an opportunity to create awesome stories.

What is Embody?


a verb

  1. to give a concrete form to; express, personify, or exemplify in concrete form
  2. to provide with a body; incarnate; make corporeal:
  3. to collect into or include in a body; organize; incorporate.
  4. to embrace or comprise.

Gaele has asked writers, Gayle Kennedy, Michèle Saint-Yves and Colin Hambrook to collaborate by writing some beginnings, middles and ends.

Our partners Tutti Visual Arts have also contributed some exciting visual narratives.

Gaele is offering you the opportunity to play around with different combinations of these written and visual beginnings, middles and ends. Mix them up to make your own stories!

How can I participate in Collude?

Everyone starts with the same tools, idea or theme the guest Collude artist gives.

You complete each Collude project by following the simple but specific instructions.

When you are happy with your art, give yourself a “story mixer name”, submit it and your creation gets posted online in the Collude Gallery.

Use the hashtag #A2Acollude and share your Collude art with your friends and the world on social media.

You can participate as many times as you want during each Collude project. The most important thing is that you participate!

The project, Embody with Gaele Sobott, her writer friends and Tutti artists, can be accessed below. Become a story mixer. Have fun!

What is Collude?

Collude is Access2Arts’ place for online projects for you to unleash your creativity. Collude combines the arts with technology to create new and exciting ways of creating art.

Every few months we will invite an awesome guest Deaf or disabled artist to set a new Collude project. You get to try new art forms, spark new ideas, share your art and have some fun.

Does Collude sound like something you’d love to be a part of? Because, we’d love you to contribute. Participate now. What are you waiting for?
