The International Disability Art Festival 2024 is taking place from 26 to 27 April 2024 at the Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy, Dhaka. This inclusive festival is the culmination event of the British Council's project, DARE (Disability Arts: Redefining Empowerment) which depicts our ten years' journey of empowering disability arts in Bangladesh and will feature representations of works and activities taking place in Bangladesh, India, Nepal, and The United Kingdom.

This festival is hosting ten theatre productions, and these productions will reflect our continued work in capacity building among artists with disabilities and bridging gaps between arts, disability, and society. This will also include thought-provoking panel discussions centring representation, accessibility and finance, film screening, exhibitions promoting disability arts and rights, and stalls and marketplace to highlight works of different disability organisations, developmental organisations, arts organisations and so on.
