Help get our inclusive theatre company to the World Down Syndrome Congress in Australia!

Headway Arts has been invited to attend the World Down Syndrome Congress 2024 in Brisbane, Australia.

This international conference brings together people with Down’s Syndrome, and the people who support us, from all around the world to share, learn, teach, network and grow.

This is an incredible opportunity for us to spread our work far and wide; to show people what we can do, share our ideas and learn from others. We’re unbelievably excited!

But Brisbane is 10,000 miles from Blyth… so we need YOUR help to get us there!
