Through our DAC Annual Exhibition we showcase and tour the work of Wales-based disabled and D/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.

We welcome entries under the theme of ‘Trust’ – It is intended as a broad theme open to wider interpretation
