NDACA will bring to life the heritage and rich history of the Disability Arts Movement. This unique Heritage Lottery Foundation funded project is the first of its kind in the world. Led by disabled people and disability arts organisations all over the UK, it will provide an important resource for disabled people to realise their own heritage. It will also bring non-disabled people closer to the struggles that disabled people have faced over the last 30 years. In this talk Tony Heaton will examine the vision for this project and the wider historical and social context.

Tony Heaton OBE has been involved in the disability arts sector as an artist and activist for many years and he has led on the development of the project. He is CEO of Shape, the disability-led arts organisation. He created the lecterns for Lord Coe and Sir Peter Craven for the opening ceremonies of the Olympic and Paralympic games.
