iDA, an awards scheme for disabled and deaf artists based in Northern Ireland
ADAI, the unique cross border scheme which benefited dozens of disabled and deaf artists, came to an end after An Chomhairle Ealaion, the Arts Council of Ireland, announced, earlier this year, that it was withdrawing its support.
However, the ADF has now reached an agreement with the Arts Council of Northern Ireland and in June will be opening a 2014-15 scheme called iDA, which will be similar to the Arts & Disability Awards Ireland scheme. This will be for disabled/deaf artists based in Northern Ireland. News will be released shortly.
