DaDaLive is a progressive live art-form programme for Disabled and d/Deaf young people aged 13-19 years, from the areas of Halton, St Helens, Knowsley, Sefton, Wirral and Liverpool.

DaDaLive is delivered through a partnership between DaDa – Disability and Deaf Arts, Fittings Multimedia Arts and Fuse: New Theatre for Young People. The programme will allow the participants to choose, explore and combine a range of art forms, leading to the creation of two large scale stage productions over a two year period. Potential art forms could include: music, theatre, dance, stand-up comedy, film, visual arts and animation.

DaDaLive will also empower the young people, through training and practical experience, to specialise in performance, production, technical or front of house roles; equipping them to pursue further training, education or employment in the creative industries.
