The theme of this year’s open exhibition is ‘On The Edge’

Through our DAC Annual Exhibition we showcase and tour the work of Wales-based disabled and deaf artists or those living with long term physical and/or mental health conditions.

It is an open exhibition including work from up-and-coming artists and those who have been working as professional artists for many years. Our aim is to raise profiles; increasing the likelihood of sales, enabling the progression of careers in the creative sector; building relationships between peers and exhibiting venues.

We show a variety of forms and media; DAC supports artists working across all art forms, therefore giving as many artists as possible the opportunity to include their work

The exhibition will take place at the following venues  – dates and details to be confirmed

  • Celf O Gwmpas, Llandrindod Wells
  • Cyfarthfa Castle Museum & Gallery, Merthyr Tydfil
  • Royal Cambrian Academy, Conwy
  • Theatr Clwyd, Mold

Farewell and Thanks to Sara

It has been a strange day in the office today as we watch Sara Mackay clear her desk for the last time. I’m sure all our members and supporters will want to join me in wishing her all the very best for her future adventures and huge thanks for all she has given Disability Arts Cymru over the past 27 years.

We look forward to welcoming Brychan Tudor in January, I’m sure there are exciting times ahead for DAC.

Thanks to everyone who has supported the organisation during 2017, we look forward to working with as many disabled artists as possible in the coming year.

Very warm seasons greetings to you all.
