Mobility for Disability: in Carnival and Outdoor Arts back to all events

Are you a disabled artist? Are you a performer with mobility challenges? And are you interested in outdoor arts & carnival?

If yes – this is the event for you!

We are holding a FREE one day Seminar funded by Postcode Community Trust, thanks to players of People’s Postcode Lottery.

We welcome people with all disabilities to this very collaborative event. We particularly want to engage people with physical disabilities, not only with our own artistic activities, but with carnival & outdoor arts more generally.
The aims of the day will be to discover and uncover the inspirations, aspirations, challenges and boundaries to disabled artists and performers, within the context of carnival and outdoor arts; and see how we (Festive Road) can create structures with disability needs in mind in the future.

There’ll be opportunities for discussion and sharing ideas; demonstrations, including a puppetry and performance taster led by Puppeteer, Jo Munton; as well as bicycle-driven carnival design sessions led by Festive Road.

We’ll also be hearing from Tanja Erhart from the amazing Candoco Dance Company.

Lunch and refreshments included.

The event will take place at Festive Road, 28 Burners Lane, Kiln Farm, MK11 3HB – on Thursday 23rd March 10.30 – 5.00

There are limited places so please book your place soon to avoid disappointment!
