'Graeae's Ensemble programme is a vital tool in the training of D/deaf and disabled drama students. As we all strive towards full inclusion in all UK drama schools and theatrical training facilities, Ensemble will offer many of the required skills to young artists who cannot access these mainstream schools due, in a large part, to the lack of access in these old institutions and curriculums.' Mat Fraser, Graeae Patron
By supporting a third year of the Ensemble programme, YOU are investing in a new generation of D/deaf and disabled artistic leaders, and can make a real difference to the lives of young D/deaf and disabled people wanting to develop a career within theatre and the arts. You’ll also help to ensure that the theatre industry reflects the diversity of our country for future generations.
'I have grown more than I could have imagined. I have worked with some of the industry's best and have managed to break down personal barriers. This was the best way for me to start my career as an actor. Graeae has helped me so much.' Ensemble Graduate
‘Ensemble is a remarkable and possibly unique actor training initiative that seeks to facilitate and enable the imagination and talents of young actors who otherwise might not have the opportunity to explore their potential as artists.’ Annie Tyson, Acting Tutor, RADA
