Arts Ability Abu: Galway County Council
Galway County Council works closely with the Brothers of Charity in delivering and supporting disability arts projects in the county each year. Projects range from visual arts to theatre, music and dance. A vibrant programme entitled ‘Arts Ability Abu’ is rolled out each year.
Ignite!: Mayo County Council
Ignite! was established at the end of 2012, following on from the Arts & Disability Network, a capacity-building programme initiated by The Arts Council/An Chomhairle Ealaíon in 2008 and piloted with Mayo County Council Arts Office and Arts and Disability Ireland (ADI) in 2009/2010.
UPSTART: Mayo County Council
Mayo Arts Office initiated a partnership scheme in 2010 to encourage local arts venues and organisations to work with local artists and people with disabilities, through the funding of quality arts projects. This scheme is called UPSTART and events arising from it are celebrated annually in and around December 3rd, International Day of Persons with Disabilities.
