Firing the can(n)on of disability arts:
DASH are pleased to have recently launched our first ever crowd-funding based project. With only a few days left to go we are halfway towards our target of raising Â£1000. Can you pledge as little as Â£1 to help DASH make this important project happen?
We are seeking support for the compelling short film - mixing animation, live-art, spoken word and an original soundworld to challenge the absence of disability art.
You could help the project happen for as little as Â£1 and there are a variety of pledges to choose from. Rewards range from art and poetry books by sean burn and a credit on the film for those who give that little bit extra!
Visit the page on the link above for more information and to help ensure this exciting project becomes a reality:
Finally all that's left is for us to wish everyone a wonderful Christmas and a very Happy New Year! Thank-you for supporting DASH throughout 2013 - and we look forward to 2014 - what promises to be another positive year for the organisation!
