DIY’s artistic vision

Our vision is for a world where performers and arts leaders with learning disabilities are valued as part of the rich diversity of our cultural sector and our society.

We aim to:

  • Challenge preconceptions and barriers experienced by people with learning disabilities through high quality performance, education projects and research.
  • Celebrate diversity and creativity in all areas of our work.
  • Promote the achievements of performers and theatre-makers with learning disabilities and share good practice.

To do this we offer:

  • Original performances which tour schools, colleges and theatres.
  • Drama projects with schools, colleges and youth organisations including accredited Arts Award projects at Discover, Explore, Bronze and Silver levels.
  • Regular creative workshops and courses for adults with learning disabilities.
  • Training for Arts Award advisers, universities and practitioners.
  • Bespoke consultancy and training
