In addition to the live performances the following organisations will be there offering activities for you to get involved with:
The Oak Circus Centre
We will be coming to Disability Pride so you can try your hand at circus skills, you don’t need any experience!
We believe that circus is for everyone and it is a great opportunity to have fun and understand our own bodies and physicality. We believe that anyone is capable of anything, anyone can have fun discovering new talents and ultimately, everyone working together makes circus a more inclusive place.
At Disability Pride you can take part in circus workshops covering Object Manipulation and Hula Hoop. We invite you to learn something new, make new friends, and get to know that there is a circus space in Norwich which welcomes anybody and is accessible to everyone.
We aim to provide education, training and opportunities for children and adults to participate in circus skills and activities. Developing your physical skills, self-awareness, esteem, and creativity, and supporting you to improve social skills.
Extra workshops for disabled people
In addition to being at Disability Pride we are running we are running inclusive workshops after the event on Saturday 13th October and Saturday 20th October from 4:30pm-7:00pm. The workshops are open to anyone with any disability (age recommended 12 to 40).
Each workshop will run at the Oak Circus Centre, will last for 2 hours and half and will be opened to 15 participants. For each workshop two tutors will be assigned. The workshops will focus on different circus activities: object manipulation, hula hoop, aerial hoop, trapeze, and silks.
Depending on the interests and abilities of the group we will create a tailor made plan of activities for the each workshop. The workshops will cost £8.50 per person as Norfolk County Council has provided some supportive funding and are open to anyone with any type of disability.
