People with sight loss participating in acting class

Extant, a theatre and performing arts company for people with vision impairment, and Birmingham Vision have teamed up to deliver a new project for people in the Midlands.

They are looking for expressions of interest from people who would like to build their feelings of confidence, independence and well-being and forge new relationships, using drama skills.
Individuals need no previous experience but they ask that you give a certain level of commitment for a weekly project starting in January 2017.

Who is this project for?

Anyone aged 18 or older with enthusiasm, commitment and a desire to challenge their personal boundaries in a supportive environment.
