Situation

We are addressing the lack in provision of inclusive interactive theatre and arts activities in Sussex for children and young people with complex additional needs to enjoy with their families. We provide accessible immersive theatre, multimedia film events and play skills workshops for the whole family to enjoy. Otherworld provides a regular multimedia arts service for those that are often marginalised or excluded from mainstream activities.

Solution

The themed and interactive installation and our specialist facilitators create and an encouraging and stimulating environment for our visitors to enjoy and explore that is truly accessible. We believe that this programme can produce significant social, emotional and participatory beneficial outcomes for a highly marginalised group of young people and families
