Disability Participation & Awareness Fund Award

We are delighted to share that we have been selected as an awardee in Strand 3 – Arts and Cultural Activities of the Disability Participation and Awareness Fund, a fantastic initiative by Rethink Ireland and the Department of Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth (DCEDIY).

The Disability Participation and Awareness Fund will support 20 innovative projects across Ireland, building skills and removing barriers to help people with disabilities take part in their communities.

Strand 3 awards fund Arts and cultural activities, particularly those that promote awareness of the lived experiences of people with disabilities and that support the participation of people with disabilities in artistic, cultural, and community life.

Our commitment to inclusivity in music is at the forefront of our Notes & Signs project, and we are honoured to contribute to a more accessible and diverse musical landscape.

The Notes & Signs project was seeded over the last two years with the intention to be developed for, with, and by d/Deaf and Disabled people, alongside non-disabled people, all passionate about creating greater equity to access live music performances and learning opportunities. The Project Leadership team is unique and includes Deaf and Hearing Musicians, a Deaf person and a qualified ISL interpreter, and aims to grow the reach of live music performance and create resources and tools to support music education and capacity in music interpretation for deaf audiences.

Stay tuned for updates on our journey!
