Leading Change in Arts and Culture: Strategy 2017-2021 Launch

Posted: 14 November, 2017

Arts & Disability Ireland will launch it’s new strategic plan Leading Change in Arts and Culture 2017 – 2021 at the Project Arts Centre on 30th November 2017.

Leading Change in Arts and Culture: Strategic Plan 2017-2021 aims to take us further towards realising our ambitious vision. To date, we have focused on effecting change by embedding knowledge and legacy in all the partnerships we have been involved in. From this point on we will seek to scale up our impact, in partnership with others, to achieve transformational change across the arts sector.

Our ambition is to see innovative art by people with disabilities throughout the country, not just in pockets or particular places. This we intend to achieve through a series of strategic multi-annual projects that will result in greater visibility for the work of artists with disabilities. In parallel we are determined to embed a more holistic approach to accessible arts programming at a local, regional and national level.

Senator John Dolan CEO of the Disability Federation of Ireland will launch Leading Change in Arts and Culture, setting a national context for ADI’s 5-year plan.

We invite you to enjoy a unique performance of The M House by Equinox Theatre Company which toured to national acclaim earlier this year. Louise Bruton will give an activist’s response to ADI’s Going Out Survey, which set out to understand how people with disabilities engage with arts and culture in Ireland. And we will reflect on past successful partnerships with a screening of the short film 3 Ignite Commissions.

Thursday 30th November 2017, 4pm
Project Arts Centre
Temple Bar

The launch will be followed by light refreshments at 5pm.
