Lewisham Disability Coalition By Lewisham Disability Coalition

We propose to run a disability fun palace in Goldsmiths Community Centre in October 2017 aimed at disabled people and people with complex mental health needs

Lewisham Idea stage

We successfully ran a fun palace in the Glass Mill Centre in Lewisham in October 2017 which celebrated artwork created by local disabled people. We would like to run a similar event in another part of the borough where there is need for creative arts work to support wellbeing

What we'll deliver:

  • Provide summer art therapy activity for disabled people from across the borough to contribute to the festival
  • Develop social media presence to celebrate individual artists
  • Run a two day celebration of disability arts

Why it's a great idea:

There is considerable evidence for the beneficial impact of arts therapies in the support of wellbeing and self esteem as well as helping people to give structure to their days. The festival is also an opportunity to celebrate the talent that exists locally and consolidate existing relationships in an area of deprivation but also strong community solidarity.

Steps to get it done:

  • Art work completed
  • Programme finalised and participants confirmed
  • Sessions developed and advertised
  • Event organised and publicised
