Help Diverse City's extraordinary company of disabled & non-disabled young performers tour their show 'Becoming'

by Diverse City in Poole, Dorset, England

Diverse City believes the performing arts should be for everybody.

Everybody should have equal opportunities to train, perform and develop their skills because together we can change the world.

But...

Many young people never get the chance to explore their talent or to find an audience.

SO WHAT ARE WE DOING ABOUT IT?

Our company Extraordinary Bodies Young Artists is changing all that. It brings together disabled and non disabled young people to learn together and make shows that change how people think about us.

WHY DO WE NEED HELP?

We need help to get our next show - 'Becoming' - out to audiences in Dorset and the south west. We need help to tell our stories so that people know what we are capable of. We need help to make sure that our show is supported by professionals. 

HOW WILL WE SPEND THE MONEY RAISED?

We need to pay for professional costumes, expert lighting and sound design and critical support for qualified access workers. Every single pound you donate will help us towards our goal and will win you a reward.

WHAT IS THE SHOW ABOUT?

Our new show 'Becoming' is about identity and the reality of growing up. It's the story of how it feels to be us. The story of our journeys, how we started and who we are becoming...it is the stories that we want to tell. 

MORE ABOUT US
