What is included

The service offers interactive disability awareness workshops and drama performances for children and young people of all ages and abilities that seek to:

  • challenge stereotypes
  • generate awareness
  • promote equality, and
  • inspire an interest in a career in the performing arts

The team includes actors who themselves have disabilities or autism. They highlight and showcase issues that are pertinent to communities, not just disabled people. They involve the audience by making comparisons to their own experiences and getting children and young people to participate.
