Art Shape have taken Carnival preparations online and are recruiting local people to take part in an exciting Carnival course – ‘The Open Road’ where participants will work with local and international dance and Carnival artists to develop flamboyant props, bits of costumes and moves. These will run on Saturday mornings from 10am to 2pm in August – on 15th, 22nd and 29th. At a time when so many disabled people are having to lockdown and shield for extended periods of time, a bit of carnival creativity will bring us together and lift our spirits! Anyone over 12 with a disability and an interest in getting creative, dressing up and sharing some fun moves, is welcome to apply. Family members, Personal Assistants, carers or housemates can also join in.
