Disability Arts Online

Disability Arts Online logo


Disability Arts Online (DAO) is an arts organisation led by disabled people. We occupy a unique global position with our UK-based journal, social media network, partnership work, commissioning and artist development programmes, supporting a vibrant community of disabled creatives. We work to take action for social justice, countering negative portrayals of disability. We exist to serve artists and arts audiences and, in doing so, to enable social change. DAO has a rich history of championing the development of disability arts and breaking down barriers to arts engagement from a disability-led position. We recognise that disability is an intersectional experience and seek to loudly and proudly nurture an equitable community space for everyone.
