Three collaborative commissions in Galway, Mayo and Cork celebrating arts and disability led by internationally recognised artists with disabilities.
‘An opportunity to Dream Big!’ – Ignite was designed to generate Ireland’s most ambitious showcasing of talent from people with disabilities.
The commissions were led by international and Irish artists and performers with disabilities. These commissions each represented an investment of up to €60,000, Ireland’s largest ever investment in Arts and Disability.
