Call out for learning disabled artists / companies to perform at the Albany Theatre
Applicants to apply before Friday 14 June 2019
On Wednesday 27 November 2019, Mind the Gap is running a full-day event at the Albany, London. We are seeking learning-disabled artists and companies to perform and showcase their work as part of the event.
This is an opportunity to present high quality, exciting and engaging work to an international audience of fellow artists, staff from theatre venues, and arts industry professionals.
Mind the Gap is one of Europe’s leading learning disability theatre companies, and is hosting this event to share learning, ideas and conversation linked to three projects – Staging Change, Engage and Ogmius (Erasmus+).
Our Staging Change and Engage projects (funded by the Paul Hamlyn and Esmee Fairbairn Foundations) are about working with theatre venues in England to increase opportunities for learning-disabled people to be involved with the arts.
The Ogmius project funded by Erasmus+ is exploring new ways for learning-disabled artists to evaluate their own work and that of other artists. We are working with two European theatre company partners – L’Oiseau Mouche from France and Moomsteatern from Sweden.
The showcase performances will be spread throughout the day so that event visitors can see work by a range of different artists and companies.
