A Different Way

A ‘show and tell’ project connecting Performing Arts for Young Audiences with Disabled artists and young people.

We are delighted to be partners on this brilliant and essential new project by Daryl Beeton Productions.

A Different Way is a ‘show and tell’ project connecting Performing Arts for Young Audiences with Disabled artists and young people. It combines research into new approaches to co-production with artist and sector development, placing the voices of young Disabled people at the heart of the creative process.

Led by Daryl Beeton Productions with core partners Half Moon Theatre, Spark Arts for Children, New Wolsey Theatre and Mimbre with supporting partners Graeae Theatre Company, Attenborough Arts Centre and TYA UK, the project will create space for action and discussion to make Performing Arts for Young Audiences more inclusive.

There will be opportunities for Disabled artists who are new to making work with young audiences to be involved in the R&D processes for 3 shows aimed at different age groups, each exploring the nuances of access and inclusion. The shows will be accompanied by a ‘warts and all’ case study giving the inside track on the creative process which will be launched at the A Different Way Symposium in 2020.
