Looking for something fun and creative to do this August?
Join us online on our virtual ‘OPEN ROAD’ CARNIVAL COURSE

10am – 2pm on 15th, 22nd and 29th August

Open Road is for disabled people aged 12+ with an interest in Carnival. One or more family members, house mates and/or Personal Assistants are welcome to join in online.

You’ll get to:

Work with professional Carnival Makers and Choreographers.

Learn some moves (and develop your own!).

Make elements of costume and/or props using materials around your home or sent through the post.

Get creative with others in similar lockdown / shielding circumstances.

To find out more about the course and how to apply visit our website. 

Deadline for applications is Monday 27th July.

If you’d like a chat before applying, contact Amy Iles – or ring Art Shape on 01452 863855.

This course is part of a national project addressing barriers disabled people face in accessing Carnival. For some, there might be the chance to continue working with the team and other disabled and non-disabled participants ready for Gloucester Carnival in July 2021.

We’ll talk about access needs in advance to see how we may be able to remove barriers to participation
