Since its foundation in 1996, Masquerade’s aim has been to integrate people of all abilities within an arts environment using drama, dance, music and art. In 2012, Masquerade as an organisation folded but the workshop delivery was taken over by Arts Connection. “Our inclusive approach creates a space where participants of all ages and abilities are valued within a supportive community. We believe that the creative arts can help build confidence and can create ways to express and understand thoughts and feelings.”
At Masquerade we work on: improvisation, speech and language, characterisation, story telling, script development, creative writing, devising dance and movement, singing and using the voice, music, art – prop making, mask making, scenery painting.
The project works with many local people from the learning disabled to children. We hope you can help us to continue the Masquerade project on an annual basis.
