Mayo County Council’s Arts service has made a considerable commitment to working in the area of arts and disability locally, nationally and internationally. People with disabilities throughout the county have collaborated with artists and venues on projects such as the Arts and Disability Network pilot project, 2008 to 2010, the Altered Images project, 2008 to 2011, and the Ignite project 2013 to 2015.
A number of long-term, equality-based projects are also funded annually such as the Luisne Art Group.
Where possible, opportunities to include people with disabilities are sought so that groups of people with disabilities are invited to participate in other programme strands.
