raised of £30,000 target by 43 supporters

    Weʼve raised £1,215 to TripleC is a collective of non/disabled creatives who are challenging the blocks faced by disabled people to the arts in Manchester.

    Funded on Thursday, 13th July 2017

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    Many disabled people are told that "the arts aren't for you". TripleC want to change that by delivering workshops for disabled people by disabled artists based in theatres in and around Manchester. We want to use theatre to enable people to fulfil their potential, give confidence to people to pursue their dreams (no matter what they are) and create a few disabled actors along the way.
    TripleC want to go into disabled schools to provide drama - which is currently not on their curriculum.
    TripleC want to set up a disabled youth theatre which will be linked to all of the mainstream youth theatres in Manchester - we will provide workshops for all youth theatre leaders in Manchester on how to make their work accessible to all.

    TripleC want to run:

    Theatre workshops to help enable social interaction for adults with Disabilities who are interested in the arts

    Theatre workshops for adults with Learning Disabilities

    Theatre Workshops for adults with Disabilities who want to be actors

    Theatre Workshops for adults with Mental Health Issues

    Theatre Workshops for adults with Autism

    We also want to:

    Create a Deaf Theatre Group

    Use theatre and film to challenge issues faced by people with disabilities

    Unite all creatives with disabilities across Manchester and be a linking bridge between them and the different arts organisations, making artists with disabilities more empowered and less isolated.

    Many of our disabled residents are stuck at home with little or no contact with the outside world because they have experienced drastic care cuts, meaning people have as little as 3 hours care outside the house each week. TripleC wants to fund the care and transport required to enable these individuals to attend drama workshops which promote identity and confidence - something which has been cruelly taken away from them.

    Please help us to make a lasting change for people with disabilities. The arts can be critical factor in social change.
