Access & Aesthetic

Part of the Headway Arts team are travelling to Lisbon, Portugal, this week for the first meeting in our Erasmus Plus-funded project Access & Aesthetic.

Access and Aesthetic


Access and Aesthetic’ (A&A) is a partnership project with a focus on the exchange of good practice. A&A will explore inclusive practice in the arts and disability sector, specifically, but not exclusively, focusing on those who are learning disabled. The project will research, explore, test, and develop ways of embedding access into performance so that neither audience nor performer is disassociated from the performance itself.
