Bounce! Arts Festival springs into action

The Bounce! Festival, highlighting the creativity of disabled artists, will take place from 25th to 28th August mainly in the Lyric Theatre.


Bounce! - the annual arts festival with powerful performances that stir the imagination and provoke argument and debate - takes Belfast by storm from August 25th - 28th.
The fifth Bounce! Disability and Deaf Arts Festival boasts a varied programme of theatre, contemporary dance, live music, performance poetry, visual arts and street circus from leading disabled artists from Britain, Ireland and beyond.

Please forward this link to anyone else that you think might be interested!

Bounce! goes where most arts festivals fear to tread confronting prejudice, celebrating achievement and recognising artistic talent and excellence.

Shiro Masuyama

How disability made me an artist (free)

Launch Thursday 25th August
6 - 7pm then 26th - 28th August
11am - 4pm
ADF Gallery


Artists often aren’t comfortable exposing personal experience of disability through their art; but for this exhibition, Shiro Masuyama says: “I want to focus on how disability has affected my art practice and my life, by sharing projects from childhood right through to my most recent professional artistic practice.” The show includes thoughts from and collaborations with Shiro’s mother, Tei Masuyama.

Opportunity: Bounce! workers and volunteers needed!!!

It's that Bouncy time of year again: everything is set for a weekend of wonderful, accessible work by disabled artists in Belfast.

We need voluntary helpers to make Bounce! Arts Festival run smoothly. This year's festival runs between Thursday 25th - Sunday 28th August.

- Volunteers get local travel/mileage and meal costs covered.

- All helpers get a free ticket to events they cover and to two others of their choice.

- Past Bounce! helpers have gone on to become ADF members, project workers, IDA grant recipients, board members and/or regular volunteers.

- Volunteers say how much fun they had.
