Overview

Mayo County Council Arts Office is very proactive in the area of disability and the arts. A number of long-term, equality-based projects are funded annually. In addition, where possible, opportunities to include people with disabilities are sought so that groups of disabled people are invited to participate in other programme strands. For example, the New Ground residency in 2008 involved community artists, communities, Cranmór group (LUISNE) from Ballinrobe, The HSE Rural Training Centre, Castlebar and the general public in a holistic event in May. The Writer in residence programme also includes groups of people with disabilities such as the Dolmen Clubhouse. Mayo County Council’s Artsquad is also inclusive in ethos and up to 50% of participants are registered people with disabilities.
