Arts Without Boundaries; breaking down barriers to participation logo

At AwB we know how important it is to spend time with friendly and supportive people, creating something unique and special together, like music or poetry.  We also know that for some people it can be more difficult to join in because of all sorts of barriers. We aim to break down those barriers so that more people can take part. Our adult groups are for all abilities and age ranges from 19 to 90! Our amazing workshop leaders make sure that everyone can join in, and we really appreciate all the different ideas and talents that people bring to our groups. The way we run our sessions means that people with physical disabilities, learning disabilities and mental health challenges are able to join with people who don’t have disabilities and we all learn from each other about new ways of being creative and of bringing out every single person’s skills. That is what makes us so special!

We began in 2011 as a band called ‘Band Without Boundaries’ and we have around 30 members. Some had never played before they joined us but now we all make music together once a month and regularly perform at concerts. We also do small group sessions on Zoom which are great fun!

We run poetry sessions and you don’t have to read or write to join in. We have now performed at three festivals!

Our members enjoy the outdoors, so we do photography and craft sessions at a nature reserve and are helped out by people from the local camera club.

ALL our activities are FREE and we welcome new members to our charity.
