You don’t get to choose your own family. More frustratingly, you don’t get to pick other peoples’ families either.

This is a game about meeting your partner’s family for the first time. Your partner who you love, and who loves you. Their family. Their family they’ve kinda already warned you is a bit…

Okay. That’s fine. At least you have a heads up. It probably won’t be that bad. They’re just nervous. It’ll be fine. Right?


This is not a game about intersectionality. It’s about non-intersectionality, and how it interacts with us.

What is DaDaFest Scratch?

Scratch is an exciting opportunity, a creative space for disabled, Deaf and neurodivergent artists to showcase the early ideas of a piece of work. It is a place for them to discover, to discuss, to develop and to explore potential next steps.

Work developed for Scratch may go on to form part of our DaDaFest International Festival next year.

Come along and try out something new! Find out more.
