3rd October to 3rd December 2003


Welcome to the third and biggest DaDaFest! As 2003 celebrates European Year of Disabled People the DaDaFest’s working group wanted to rejoice in style with a two-month festival of activities This programme is just the tip of the iceberg – we have many other activities taking place and we encourage you to visit our web site to check new events, especially for the Children’s and Young Peoples work. We have an amazing variety of activities from Film Festival, International Arts Exhibitions, performances galore and many workshops from writing, comedy and theatre through to numerous activities at the museums and galleries on Merseyside.

We would like to thank the key funders Arts Council England: North West, Liverpool City Council, Capital of Culture Team and the many organisations who are putting on events and activities throughout the two month period, too many to mention here. Do go and enjoy the events, laugh at a show and even learn new skills, but above all have fun and be amazed at the remarkable talent of the many Disabled and Deaf artists that make up DaDaFest. Ruth Gould, Creative Director, NWDAF For all the latest information visit www.nwdaf.co.uk

This programme is available in other formats, contact NWDAF

We would like to acknowledge support from Liverpool Community College, Unity Theatre, Hope Street Ltd and London Disability Arts Forum plus:
