IFACCA today released its latest D'Art report, Arts and Disability Policies. Written by IFACCA's research analyst, Chris Madden, with the help of 11 respondents, the report looks at concepts and issues surrounding disability and the arts, and explores disability policies and programs adopted by arts funding agencies. Examples of arts and disability initiatives are provided, with resources listed both by type of initiative and by country. The report will be of interest to anyone looking to develop arts and disability initiatives or review existing policies and programs. IFACCA welcomes feedback and additional comments on the report.
