Start with the art

Our best advice is to start with the art. Start to discover your favourite Disabled artists and disability arts companies. See inclusion in practice at their theatre shows, gigs and exhibitions. Feel what a difference it makes.

If you're new to Disability arts then a great starting point is Disability Arts Online. Have a browse and get excited about the wealth of talent out there!

And here's a quick list of some fantastic disability arts organisations:
Graeae / Extraordinary Bodies / Access All Areas / Mind The Gap / Heart n Soul / Candoco / Second Hand Dance / Unlimited / Tourette's Hero / Criptic / Shape Arts / Little Cog / Attitude Is Everything
