Director of Arts & Disability Ireland, Pádraig Naughton is on his way to Washington DC / 4 June 2010

ADI are co-producing 4 staged readings of new writing for theatre by Irish disabled practitioners - with Fishamble, who are one of Ireland's most dynamic theatre companies, dedicated to the discovery, development and production of new dramatic works for the Irish and international stage.

My aim in this blog, is to reflect on ADI's involvement in the Festival as well as share my impressions of a week that will see over 2,000 people from 54 countries gather in Washington to experience performances, exhibitions, screenings and debates across the city.
