Sharing access to performing arts at Magee

One day workshop will encourage people with a physical disability to explore their creativity

The University of Ulster has teamed up with Share Music to provide a one day workshop in dance, drama and music at its Magee campus. The workshop will be an opportunity for people with a physical disability to explore their creativity under the guidance of a professional team of tutors. It is also open to able-bodied participants.

Event organiser Frank Lyons, lecturer in music at the University of Ulster commented:

‘Share Music was founded in 1983 to increase access for people with physical disabilities to high-quality training and experience in a range of performing arts. Participants will have access to state-of-the-art technology, fully adaptable for individual needs to enable everyone to develop their creativity.

‘This event is intended to give interested parties an opportunity to try out some activities in preparation for extended projects at the Magee campus in the future. The workshop will also be of interest to individuals who are keen to learn more about working in the field of disability arts.’

The workshop will take place in the Foyle Arts building on Saturday, November 6. To book your place at the workshop, either as a participant or helper, contact Frank Lyons on +44 (0) 79 7734 1893 or Nicky Thompson on +44 (0) 28 9096 0188.
