COVID-19 Safety Policy:
Disrupt Disability Arts Festival is an organisation dedicated to creating safe spaces and open access to the arts in Ireland for the disability community. We want to ensure we are a safe space for high-risk artists and audience members who want to attend our festival.
With this in mind, our events are mask-required with some exceptions. Disrupt Disability Arts Festival will provide a selection of high-quality masks at the festival free of charge. We would recommend a ffp2, ffp3, or kn95 mask.
We understand that some people cannot wear masks for a variety of reasons, and we want to assure audiences that you are still very welcome to our events. This will not affect your ability to attend any of our programme.
We will have HEPA air filtering at events and we will provide hand sanitiser free of charge.
We also encourage participants to take a covid antigen test before attending Disrupt if possible, we will have a small number of these available on request. And if you are experiencing flu or COVID-19 symptoms, we would ask you not to attend the festival.
