What We Do

University of Atypical is a disabled-led arts charity, taking an empowerment based approach towards supporting disabled and D/deaf people’s involvement in the arts. The organisation specialises in developing and promoting the work of disabled and D/deaf artists and in reaching disabled and D/deaf audiences.

The D/deaf and Disabled Artists Support Fund 3

£120,000 ‘financial lifeline’ for d/Deaf and Disabled Artists

Disabled artists are being offered a “financial lifeline” as a £120,000 grant package has just opened to fund new work as the arts sectors begins to fully reopen.

The University of Atypical will be awarding a minimum of 60 grants of £2,000 through the D/deaf and Disabled Artists Support Fund 3, which is funded by the Arts Council of Northern Ireland and the Department for Communities, to support D/deaf, disabled and Neurodiverse artists.
