Festival Celebrating Deaf, Disabled and Neurodivergent Artists

One of the UK’s premier multi-arts venues has announced a brand-new mini-festival celebrating deaf, disabled and neurodivergent artists and their work.

Disabled + Disobedient will take place at the Brighton Dome on July 6.

The festival will offer an afternoon of free workshops, talks and networking sessions created by and for deaf, disabled and neurodivergent artists and creative people, and those looking to explore a career in the arts.

This will be followed in the evening by a cabaret event, featuring theatre, dance, comedy, spoken word and music performances.

The evening session will be hosted by Brighton Dome In-House Artist Erin Enfys (pictured above) alongside a diverse line-up of leading disabled and neurodivergent artists from across the region.

Performers will include musician and drag performer Alex Fincher; poet and performer Calliope Wood; multi-disciplinary artist Erin James; disabled dance artist Lucy Clark; and subversive musical-cabaret performer Theyvid (Catriona Judt).

Following a recent major refurbishment, Brighton Dome’s venues now include even more accessible spaces to support a wider, more inclusive programme of events. They now feature more accessible dressing rooms, lower bar counters for wheelchair users and upgraded hearing assistance systems.

All Disabled + Disobedient Festival events will be BSL interpreted and wheelchair accessible.
