Disabled, d/Deaf and/or Neurodivergent Artist Network

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.

Sign up for free as a member artist to access events, training, workshops, mentoring and support.

What Can You Expect as a Member Artist?

  • Invitations to regular network meetings (online and in-person)
  • Workshops on topics such as how to find suitable commissions, write bids & exhibition proposals
  • Access to peer support, mentoring and commissions opportunities with DAiSY
  • A profile on the DAiSY website and promotion on our social media channels.

Who Can Join DAiSY-Chain?

  • Artists aged 18+ living or working across the South East who identify as D/deaf disabled, or neurodivergent
  • All art forms are welcome, from visual arts to performance, music to the written word (and everything in between!)

We particularly welcome artists who want to develop their practice further and potentially make part or all of their living from their work.
