Andrew Miller MBE

Andrew is a cultural consultant, broadcaster and an influential champion of disabled people. He belongs to the first generation of disabled presenters of British television, becoming a pioneering documentary film-maker and later, the first wheelchair-user to run a major UK arts venue at the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama.

A National Council member of Arts Council England, a Governor of the Royal Shakespeare Company and a trustee of BAFTA, Andrew previously served on the boards of The Arts Council of Wales and digital arts agency The Space. He also chairs the British Film Institute Disability Screen Advisory Group. In 2020 Andrew co-founded the UK Disability Arts Alliance, #WeShallNotBeRemoved, co-authored the Seven Inclusive Principles for cultural recovery and became chair of Arts Council England's Disability Advisory Group. 

As the UK Government’s first Disability Champion for Arts & Culture, Andrew established the role as a powerful campaigning platform for greater inclusion across the arts, museums and film, earning him a place on The Stage 100 list and The Shaw Trust Disability 100. Now a prolific writer and speaker, his consultancy supports major new cultural infrastructure such as the University of Oxford Schwarzman Centre for the Humanities and Coventry City of Culture.
