Welcome to Disability Arts International.
Across the arts world the landscape for Deaf and disabled artists is changing, gathering momentum and energy at a remarkable rate.
Artists who have a unique experience of the world make unique art. Programmers and producers are increasingly recognising that artists with a singular perspective not only challenge traditional narratives, they also challenge the received aesthetics of the art forms themselves.
Disability Arts International provides a space for arts professionals to discover more about Deaf and disabled artists working around the globe, and also information about the contexts in which they work.
The British Council is proud to coordinate Disability Arts International.
