Bounce Arts Festival
WELCOME TO BOUNCE ARTS FESTIVAL 2022
Ticket links Below
Bounce Arts Festival has become that ‘atypical’ arts festival in the annual calendar of events in Northern Ireland. Bounce is still the only festival that is solely dedicated to the celebration and showcasing of arts created by d/Deaf, disabled and neurodiverse creatives regionally.
Bounce is blossoming and maturing from its modest beginnings in 2012 as part of the cultural olympiad Bounce continues to draw the most exceptional artists from across these islands and beyond. Our main venue partner for Bounce 2022 is the Crescent Arts Centre and Bounce is doing a “Take Over” of the Crescent Arts Centre for the duration of the festival. We continue pushing our geographic boundaries, and our partnership with Derry City and Strabane district Council and new partners Fermanagh and Omagh District Council means we are able to cover events in Derry~Londonderry, Enniskillen and Omagh. Other events in the North west will be hosted by our festival partners the Nerve Centre, the Centre for Contemporary Art and the VOID.
The programme brings together a dynamic mix of performance, workshops, music, dance, visual arts and lots of fun.
Integral to our festival is accessibility – we aim to make our events as accessible as possible to D/deaf and disabled audience members. Access requirements – including captions, audio description and British and Irish Sign Language – can be booked in advance through our website.
