The 5th edition of the Arts and Disability Forum (ADF), organised by ART:DIS and the National Arts Council, brings together international and local speakers across the arts and disability sector to share their diverse experiences, providing a space for learning and reflection on best practices in the field of disability arts and access. The theme of ‘Enabling Aspirations, Diversifying Pathways’ spotlights the continuum of access in community-based programmes to programmes that support the professional development and leadership of D/deaf, disabled and neurodiverse persons in the arts. We will discuss access within inclusive environments and communities, and the support of collaborative processes and professional practices facilitated with and led by persons with disabilities.
Targeted at arts workers, social sector/SPED professionals and community stakeholders, participants can look forward to a full day of plenary talks on 22 February 2023 at Gateway Theatre, and a series of public talks and experiential hands-on workshops at ARTDIS (Bukit Merah) and Singapore Art Museum throughout that week.
