Arts and Disability Connect (ADC) provides financial support to artists with disabilities in Ireland, enabling them to develop their practice and connect with arts organisations and professionals. Administered by Arts & Disability Ireland and funded by the Arts Council, ADC offers four distinct funding strands, catering to various career stages and ambitions.

The ADC programme is divided into two opportunities in 2023:

Opportunity One, featuring Mentoring (maximum awarded €3,000) and Training awards (maximum awarded €1,000), opens on 3 April and has an application deadline of 7 June at 4pm.

Opportunity Two encompasses New Work (maximum awarded €15,000) and Research and Development awards (maximum awarded €5,000). It opens on 14 August and the application deadline is 10 October at 4pm.

ADC aims to address the evolving needs of the arts sector in Ireland and aligns with the Arts Council’s Arts and Disability Policy 2012 - 2016. The four funding strands include:

1. New Work: Designed for established artists with a strong professional track record, supporting the development and presentation of new work in collaboration with arts partners, organisations, venues, and festivals.
2. Research and Development: Intended for mid-career and established artists seeking time and resources for reflection, research, and critical engagement with their practice.
3. Mentoring: Open to artists at all career stages, including emerging artists, seeking mentoring opportunities.
Training: Available to artists at all career stages, including emerging artists, who wish to engage in professional development and learning opportunities.
4. Application forms, guidelines, Easy Read information, and FAQs for Opportunity 1 will be available on the ADI website ( from 3 April 2023. Details regarding upcoming information sessions and one-to-one support booking will be posted on the website soon.
