Winner of the National Diversity Awards 2013
Community Organisation Award for Disability
Taking Flight Theatre Company is the only proven organisation in the world that runs inclusive, outdoor promenade theatre. An amazing array of nominations is a testament to the investment this small community organisation is putting into existing and nascent disabled artists.
Taking Flight work tirelessly and selflessly to promote total inclusiveness in their professional productions, inspiring and encouraging new and would-be actors. Very active in Wales, the group has toured with productions as varied as Twelfth Night to new drama depicting the effects of disability related hate crime. All performances are staged in accessible venues and are fully described for those with sensory impairments. Feedback on Taking Flights’ work is stunning and just about sums up what is, a perfect example of a small community organisation making a real difference for disabled people.
