The 3 Creative R&D’s – A Different Way

The 3 Creative R&D’s

As Part of our A Different Way programme we have developed new shows for different age ranges . Following the ideology of ‘Nothing About Us Without Us’, the aims was  to create work with, not for, young Disabled people. This meant there was no artists locking themselves in a room before we had listen to  the voices of young people and their understanding and creative response to the themes, their ideas were needed before we could even begin. A Different Way saw us research and develop 3 new shows, delving into the nuances of access and inclusion in meaningful and entertaining ways….So here is a sneak peak at what we had been up to.
