We’ve opened registration to our Artist Development programme

If you are under 30 years of age, looking to develop your creative skills and you identify as a disabled* or D/deaf person, we can help you to achieve your goals.

It doesn’t matter if you are a poet or a painter, a musician or a multi-media artist, or anything in between.

We tailor our support to suit your needs and interests and it all takes place in a supportive environment.

We can provide:

  • Development Grants
  • Mentorships
  • Placements
  • Showcase opportunities
  • Commissions

“The DaDaFest grant allowed me to develop my skills in a range of writing techniques, helping towards my aim of being a multi-media writer and artist. It also improved my confidence as someone who can express herself through creativity.” Sarah
