About Disability Arts International

© Birds of Paradise Theatre Company

Disability Arts International is a website and regular digital newsletter developed and coordinated by the British Council. Disability Arts International aims to promote the work of the exciting generation of excellent disabled artists, disabled-led companies and inclusive arts organisations. It also aims to share the ways arts organisations are increasing access to the arts for disabled people as audiences and visitors.

We know that many artists do not wish for their work only to be seen in one narrow context; but we also know that many promoters are looking for information, resources, and ways to learn more about this vibrant arts sector.

Disability Arts International was created in 2013 by the British Council as part of a European Union Culture Programme-supported project, Unlimited Access. Unlimited Access was delivered by the British Council in partnership with VoÁrte (Portugal), the Onassis Cultural Centre (Greece) and the Croatian Institute for Movement and Dance (Croatia).
