National Disability Arts Collection & Archive Brochure
National Disability Arts Collection & Archive Launches Online
NDACA is a £1-million project by Shape Arts that brings to life the heritage and rich history of the UK Disability Arts Movement. The Disability Arts Movement began in the late 1970s and continues today. It involved a group of disabled people and their allies who broke down barriers, helped change the law with the Disability Discrimination Act of 1995, and made great culture and art about those struggles.
NDACA is the newly-launched online location where you can discover a catalogue of 3,500 images. You can also engage with learning resources, oral history films, learn about emerging disabled artists, biographies of those who contributed to the Disability Arts Movement, and much more.
Alongside the website, the uniquely accessible NDACA research facilities at Buckinghamshire New University will open in late 2018.
DASH have been pleased to support this fantastic project, supplying archival materials for the collection.
