Ruth Fabby MBE, DL, FRSA, MA Director of Disability Arts Cymru

Ruth has worked in the arts since the early 1980’s, but discovering Disability Arts in 1995 completely changed her outlook on life and herself. In 2001 she founded DaDaFest in Liverpool to make sure disabled and Deaf artists could get into the ‘mainstream’ world of the arts. The festival nurtured and exposed many key players within the arts scene. In August 2019 she became Director of Disability Arts Cymru, got married and changed her name from Gould to Fabby and moved to Cardiff.
