We deliver a range of workshops both independently and with local authorities and care providers.

We run events for communities aimed at people with visual impairments but open to all. Our events help boost confidence and self-esteem, improve development and mobility, and enable people to be creative.
Many of these events have been held at Waterside Arts Centre, who we have worked with since 2005 delivering hundreds of events, workshops, partnerships, demonstrations and presentations.
We deliver a range of professional training programs to help everyone from dancers to teachers learn how to work with visually impaired people.
See below for examples of some of these training programs and success stories.
We specialise in creating bespoke workshop packages for arts organisations, care centres and health education groups to work with blind and visually impaired people. We create and deliver activities, training and education to improve the reach and diversity of your organisation.
We have worked with a large range of organisations across the world such as RNIB, British Council, Sadler’s Wells, Children in Need, Manchester City Council and Henshaw’s Society for the Blind.

Past workshop events
Here’s a list of some of the courses and activities we’ve run and the people we’ve worked with.
An Erasmus project introducing Body-Mind Centering research and application of the touch and movement methods to dance, education, and personal development – at St Vincent’s School for the Blind.
Children in Need
We received funding from BBC Children in Need to deliver a project in 3 schools involving visually impaired, sensory impaired, learning disabled and physically disabled students. We ran three groups: a visual impairment-specific group, one vulnerable girls group, and one autism specific group.
Creative Partnership Lancashire and Manchester
We were a core partner delivering dance in the curriculum, supporting teaching staff to deliver movement-based sessions, particularly in challenging class contexts.
“The children were more attentive – using creativity to explore ‘what learning is like’”

In 2005 we ran a conference workshop and presentation in Barcelona on behalf of the British Council.
We followed this up in 2011-17 in Sri Lanka and India, in collaboration with nATANDA Dance Theatre of Sri Lanka.
