We’re committed to creating spaces which are safe, inclusive and FUN so we’re really excited about this new project we’ve got, working with adults with learning disabilities to create ace parties.
For the next two years, we’ll be running workshops teaching participants with learning disabilities how to DJ, make party decorations and drinks, develop art installations, and work lighting and sound equipment. We will also be covering security, personal and public safety during the workshops. These workshops will culminate in a Saturday night disco at The Brick Box Rooms in Bradford city centre. So the events are created and curated by adults with learning disabilities but open to all. The events kick off at 7pm and are open to anyone over the age of 18 via a free ticket system. The venue is all on one level and has an accessible toilet.
The theme for the next disco is Outer Space and is on Saturday 27th July – check out the event here.
As well as advertising the opportunities and events on our own networks, the following organisations are also helping to spread the word: Mind the Gap, HFT, Purple Patch, Pyramid of Arts, Gig Buddies Bradford and Calderdale, Bradford Council, and Luv2MeetU. Big thanks to them! And many thanks to Bradford Council’s commissioning team for funding this project.
