We champion the creativity of artists with disabilities, promote inclusive experiences for audiences with disabilities and work to enhance the disability-related capacity of arts organisations. We work in partnership with the arts sector, and encourage the disability sector to do the same.
ADI exists to promote involvement and engagement in the arts by people with disabilities, as artists, audiences and arts workers. ADI is also a resource for those arts facilitators, galleries, venues, local authority arts offices, arts organisations and national cultural institutions which seek to include and engage people with disabilities in the arts at all levels.
ADI aims to work across all artforms, including but not exclusively: architecture, circus, dance, film, literature, music, opera, street arts and spectacle, theatre, traditional arts and visual arts. We see our work as encompassing a broad range of activities in arts development, audience development, access services, training, information provision and programming. We believe that the best way to achieve our aims is to work in partnership and collaboration with both the arts sector and the disability sector.
