The Arts

Arts & Disability Ireland is a resource organisation for the arts sector. We build partnerships with arts organisations, galleries, venues, local authorities and national cultural institutions. We build sustainable collaborations with strategic arts organisations so as to champion the arts and disability agenda more effectively. We advocate, on behalf of artists and audiences with disabilities, for a more inclusive arts sector. We monitor policy implementation continually and, where necessary, undertake research to inform the development of inclusive arts sector policies, resources and programmes.
