Robert Softley performing in If These Spasms Could Speak by Robert Softley/The Arches at Dublin Theatre Festival 2014

Arts & Disability Touring Network

A new initiative to bring high quality internationally acclaimed work by performers and artists with disabilities to audiences at venues throughout Ireland. Over recent years we’ve seen a steady increase in the programming of this type of work at Irish festivals. ADI’s touring initiative intends to build on these successes making such tours a regular occurrence in theatre and arts centre programmes, rather than just once off special occasions.
