Welcome to Disability Arts in Surrey

DAiSY is an umbrella organisation that promotes and celebrates the works of D/deaf, disabled and neurodiverse artists and disability arts organisations in Surrey.

As an organisation, we strive to develop the South East as the lead region in the UK for disability and d/Deaf cultural activity, making Surrey a welcoming and accessible place for all artists to practice.



DAiSY-Chain is DAiSY’s new artist network. It is for artists across the South East who identify as d/Deaf, disabled or neurodivergent, and provides a supportive network to link artists from across the county together.
