Who we are
Our vision is to inspire, develop and celebrate talent and excellence in disability and deaf arts. DaDaFest is an innovative disability arts organisation based in Liverpool, delivering the Festival and other arts events to promote high quality disability & deaf arts from unique cultural perspectives. It also produces opportunities for disabled and d/Deaf people to access the arts, including training and a young people’s programme. DaDaFest is a cutting edge Disability and Deaf Arts Agency, working not only from its base in Liverpool, but across the North West, Nationally and Internationally. Young DaDa encourages and empowers disabled and deaf young people through creativity. Over 2000 young people have taken part in creative projects and training including visual arts, performance, creative writing and film–making with Young DaDa. Young people make key decisions in the running of Young DaDa and nurture their leadership skills through our Young DaDa Steering Group. We have lots of opportunities for young people throughout the year including offering Arts Award accreditation. We also celebrate the work of the young people at Young DaDaFest.
