Help us meet our £2k target to bring a new Arts Festival to Stoke-on-Trent

We’re busy trying to fundraise for a new Disability Arts Festival that FRONTLINEdance will programme and lead, to take place in October 2019. It will have two strands: work made or performed by professional disabled artists, and bringing specially created art work and performances for hard to reach disabled communities (those who struggle with access, suitability, desire in attending).

We have already attracted some great partners, but would love for more to join us. If you are an organisation, venue, support group or charity who are wanting to support us, have your voice heard, or just want to take part then please get in touch rachael@frontlinedance.co.uk 

Thanks to Appetite and Stoke-on-Trent City Council via their Community Arts Festival and Event Fund we’ve secured £3,000 so far. FRONTLINEdance are applying to grant giving bodies for the majority, but are looking at securing an addition £2,000 from other sources. This is to make sure our festival reaches PMLD groups: people with ‘Profound and Multiple Learning Difficulties’ (PMLD) have complex learning needs. In addition to their severe learning difficulties, they may have other significant difficulties, such as physical disabilities, sensory impairment or a severe medical condition.

More info on both of these to follow, but you can make a donation here:
