What a busy summer, and the sun is shining for us into the exciting Autumn term. As always we are very excited to have some great projects coming up.


. Our brand new show Moonbird based on the children's book by Deaf write Joyce Dunbar and Jane Ray is being explored and developed as part of Litmus Fest at The Pleasance and will have public sharings on the 29th & 30th September. We would love to see lots of familiar faces and families for those early showings. We are very happy to announce that this has been supported by Arts Council England.


We continue to be working with some young Deaf leaders of the future on their Arts Awards. As well as working with some incredible Deaf young actors in their schools across London.


We are working on a new collaboration with Chickenshed where we will be working with some young Deaf actors in developing Deaf accessible practices for a new piece in October.


And as always we have our Deaf and hearing outreach teams who will be working with many young people across the UK on projects with Early Years, KS1 and KS2, using creativity to explore our communication, confidence, well-being and emotional literacy.


For teachers going back to school we have a range of INSET workshops, and also look forward to visiting your school with projects about citizenship, community as well as range of news topics you send our way!


We love to find creative and accessible ways to teach the curriculum,

so do contact us with any tricky topics - we love a challenge!


Please look at our education pages for more information and workshops.
