DaDaFest get a new website

logo

We’re so thrilled to launch our new website.

Over the past 30 years, DaDaFest has grown and developed. We’ve evolved from a small pioneering disability and Deaf arts organisation into one which develops and delivers a programme of festivals and projects that support, nurture and promote disabled artists and disability and Deaf arts. Our old website was not fully reflecting the range of our current activity, and we knew something needed to be done.

We were lucky enough to win the ‘Big Lottery Reaching Communities Fund’ back in October 2016. The successful bid meant that we were able to prioritise the development of a new website.

We worked with a leading digital agency called WEB. The aim was simple, to develop a bespoke site which would crucially; showcase our work, represent our identity visually and importantly, be highly accessible.

The development of our website was managed by DaDaFest staff and it was vital for us that we consulted our Young Leaders during this process. We gathered their ideas on all areas of the website including look and feel and accessibility, ensuring that this feedback was captured and listened to.

We are hugely proud to say that our new website has a triple ‘AAA’ accessibility rating with Web Content Accessibility Guidelines WCAG 2.0.

We hope you love our website and find everything that you need. If you do have any feedback, we’d love to hear it! Send us an email by clicking this link.
