Activate is all about coming together – artists, families, and neighbours like you – to shine a light on the incredible lives of people with learning disabilities and/or autism. It’s a place where stories come alive, and everyone’s voice is heard!

Join us from April to November 2024 as we embark on an exciting journey through Manningham’s creative spaces, schools, and community hubs, offering free workshops for all ages.

We want to hear YOUR story – the challenges, the joys, the creative spark that makes Manningham truly unique. Together, we’ll weave these stories into a beautiful piece of theatre to share with our community.
