Access to the Arts in BSL is limited: young people may actively exclude themselves from experiencing any form of discipline and may not consider a career in the Arts due to lack of availability, experience and lack of awareness of opportunities.

The Deaf Arts Festival allows young people between the ages of 10 and 18 to experience Deaf Arts and Deaf Culture delivered by Deaf professionals from the UK arts industry.  All workshops are delivered in BSL.

As this event continues to grow our plans are to ensure it is a regular event in the Deaf Hub(Wales) calendar, continuing to provide strong and important Deaf role models for young Deaf people. These events have been supported by the National Lottery Fund, the Wales Millennium Centre and the Arts Council for Wales.
