In championing the creativity of artists with disabilities Arts & Disability Ireland is committed to working with the arts sector to embed and mainstream access. Our residency partnerships with Fire Station Artists’ Studios and axis:Ballymun are an opportunity for artists with disabilities to participate in a residency alongside their non-disabled peers in some of Dublin’s most dynamic and vibrant visual and performing arts organisations.
