In­clu-Arts gives ev­ery­one a chance

Harefield Gazette - - OPINION -

IN­CLU-ARTS was es­tab­lished in 2014 by Sarah Burgum and me, dance and drama spe­cial­ists and per­form­ing arts lec­tur­ers at Uxbridge Col­lege and Stan­more Col­lege.

The aim of the company is to pro­vide dance and drama op­por­tu­ni­ties for dis­abled and non-dis­abled young peo­ple and adults.

Both Sarah and I have a strong belief in en­cour­ag­ing and pro­mot­ing in­clu­sion in per­form­ing arts and, with ex­pe­ri­ence in lead­ing in­clu­sive ses­sions, de­cided to use our skills to form In­clu-Arts. The ses­sions will pro­vide dance, drama and per­for­mance op­por­tu­ni­ties.

The company’s mis­sion state­ment is to pro­vide in­clu­sive per­form­ing arts ses­sions for dis­abled and non-dis­abled young peo­ple and adults.

It is at In­clu-Arts that cre­ativ­ity and ex­pres­sion are en­cour­aged and the pre­con­cep­tions of per­for­mance are chal­lenged.

The ses­sions will be launched on Thurs­day, Novem­ber 6, from 7pm to 8.30pm at The Stu­dio, in Hare­field, and are ini­tially for young peo­ple and adults who are 16 and over.

For more in­for­ma­tion and to sign up to the ses­sions please email in­clu­arts@gmail.com or call me on 07809 374 009.

Sarah and I are also keen to hear from par­ents/ca­reers who would be in­ter­ested in a ses­sion which is aimed at chil­dren and teenagers.
