The Why? Festival: Permission to Speak – Permission to Perform
This project is a fantastic intitiative to develop Disability and Diverse Arts practices and engagement and audience involvement from our local communities upwards through Birmingham and The Greater Midlands Areas
The Why? Festival is a programme of performance and performance development opportunities aimed at discovering and working with new and emergency artists who define themselves as Disabled People or of Diverse Culture
Funded initially through an ACE Grant for Arts, the programme will run a series of workshops looking at performance and creative skills, and devising new works sessions, and will compliment these with a number of live performance opportunities including larger festival type events as artists and performance ready work is created and identified.
