Why your support matters?
We create world-class accessible theatre for everyone by breaking down barriers, challenging preconceptions and empowering indivuduals. Our work is informed by the wealth of bold, talented Deaf, disabled and neurodivergent artists.
Our mission is to ignite artistic curiosity, pioneer radical theatre and place access at the heart of our creative process. We provide a diversity of platforms for new generations of artists through productions, training and new writing programmes.
It is essential that disabled people and their voices are represented on and off stage. The arts have a key role in sharing marginalised voices and ensuring that everyone in society is represented. However, disabled people continue to be marginalised in society, theatre and culture – with inequality in terms of access, audience and participation numbers, and opportunities for training, employment and progression.
What we do:
- We create world-class accessible theatre: Reaching new audiences, including those with little access to the arts
- We train and educate: nurturing talent to open up arts for disabled artists at all levels and ages
- We make change: championing accessibility across the sector exploring new processes and representing a greater diversity of voices on and off stage
