“Only if we free ourselves from the existing held view on art and disability in our society, can we be part of the creative process more successfully.” Wolfgang Stange

Disability Arts Festival

Wolfgang Stange has an international reputation for creating integrated performance involving artists with and without disabilities, creating stunning work together. With this commission, any artist of any age with a disability living in the Borough will be invited to an open workshop. Wolfgang will choose participants at random and work with them over the next few months to create a 30 minute piece of theatre, dance and circus inspired by 400 years of Hammersmith United Charities.

This will be premiered at the ArtsFest in June. Finally, at the end of September, JOY will hold a weekend of celebration to rejoice the efforts of the project in the past year. This will be held over 2 days at the end of September in the ballroom of the town hall.

This grand event will bring together all the work across the whole spectrum of JOY (work in schools and adult community groups) and ArtsFest 2018 to be curated and programmed into a spectacular celebration.
