Participation Inclusion - Upswing
We believe passionately in the universal and empowering effect of circus and our mission is to reach out and engage participants who might not otherwise partake in this experience. Our inclusion work builds successfully on the partnerships and collaborations we have developed with like minded organisations. We are always looking for new opportunities to extend this.
Heart n Soul
Upswing work regularly with Heart n Soul, a creative arts company that works with adults with learning disabilities and their carers.
In 2013 we curated their Autumn AllSorts season, which was called the “Body” season. Allsorts is a program of innovative creative art engagement for adults with learning disabilities. Run over 8 weeks, Allsorts provides participants with an all day workshop menu that invites them to express themselves, engage with contemporary art forms and have new experiences.
Upswing helped deliver the 2 week inclusive summer school at Haringey Shed last summer, culminating in 2 productions on the theme of the Ugly Duckling.
