Arts and Disability Connect
Arts and Disability Connect (ADC) is a scheme open to artists with disabilities working in any artform.
This scheme is designed to support artists with disabilities to make new and ambitious work. It offers artists the opportunity to:
– connect with other practitioners or venues;
– make a change in their practice;
– ‘step up’ in terms of scope and scale;
– reach new audiences and to engage in mentoring and training.
Funded by the Arts Council/An Chomhairle Ealaíon and managed by Arts & Disability Ireland ADC continues to be tailored closely to the needs of artists living in the Republic of Ireland in a way that complements other funding opportunities available.
Arts and Disability Connect has been created in response to the changing needs of the sector in the Republic of Ireland and in line with Arts Council commitments outlined in its Arts and Disability Policy 2012 - 2016 (PDF, 3.98MB). Arts and Disability Connect has three funding strands.
