A week long festival celebrating disability and challenging stereotypes, lots of the events will have a BSL interpreter for full access.
Kaleidoscope celebrates the diversity of human bodies. We have invited 23 local disability led charities and organisations to choose what happens across Storyhouse this week, in order to celebrate life with a disability and challenge stereotypes.
We believe a more equal world is a better world. 13.9 million people in this country live with a disability – 1 in 5 of us. But if you live with disability, your life chances – to access employment, justice, education, culture, transport, healthcare – are not equal in the UK today. You are more likely to face unfair treatment at work, you are 30% more likely to be the victim of crime, you are twice as likely to be unemployed as a non-disabled person. You are less likely than a non-disabled person to access decent accommodation, visit the theatre or a library, or be able to get on a train. There is a lot to challenge.
Come and join us: sing, sign, knit, drum, dance, act, laugh – be inspired and energised by the extraordinary programme we are proud to host, which allows Storyhouse to speak directly with the many voices of local people living with disability.
Location: Storyhouse, Chester
