Arts Disability
Supporting and developing disabled and deaf people's involvement in the arts


The ADF is a catalyst for empowering disabled people who are interested in the arts.

It promotes artistic excellence and equity of access to arts and culture.

It is the only NI organisation representing the interests of disabled artists.


Our vision is of a genuinely inclusive arts environment, where any disabled or deaf person can be involved as they wish!
