Bluecoat: National Disability Arts Collection and Archive (NDACA) Launch
Times: 14:00 - 16:30
Mon 3 Dec 2 – 4.30pm
The National Disability Arts Collection and Archive (NDACA) goes live throughout 2018. NDACA is collecting the heritage story of the Disability Arts Movement, in which a group of disabled people and their allies broke barriers, helped change the law and made great art and culture about those struggles. NDACA has filmed oral histories, created animations, and collected over 3,000 unique deposits from this incredible movement, which can be seen at www.the-ndaca.org
Tony Heaton (Chair of Shape Arts) will provide a history of NDACA with a northern twist, which will be followed by a conversation with David Hevey (CEO of Shape Arts) about the content of the presentation and his reflections of the disability arts movement. This will then be opened up to the audience for questions.
Free, booking required
