Tea & Trailers
Before the final performance of CONTAINED at The Albany, Deptford in March 2016, Mind the Gap hosted tea and trailers. It was an exciting opportunity for learning disability companies from around the UK to come together, meet, share and play in a fun and supportive environment.
The event attracted over 80 attendees ranging from professional artists through to someone who had engaged in the arts for the very first time that day. The floor was ‘open to anyone’ to share their art. The event began with professional companies and high quality performances, which helped to set the tone. Contributions ranged from pre- prepared presentations, to sharing films of work, to poetry readings, beatbox, solo and group dances and more. Leading to a spontaneous group dance at the end of the event, followed by cake!
