Opportunities for Actors with Disabilities

from Justin Hyslop

L4T is a large scale outreach and research project designed to find disabled individuals who could be the professional actors and theatre makers of tomorrow. We will find partner groups and venues through which we will deliver educational workshops building towards an intensive summer programme in 2015.

'Man Who Live Twice' - Birds of Paradise Theatre
 In partnership with Birds of Paradise Theatre, Scotland’s leading disability theatre company, Electric Theatre Workshop are supporting this exciting new project ‘Looking 4 Talent’ by inviting any local organisations or services who support disabled individuals or groups who would be interested to learn more about this exciting new opportunity.

Due to the time of year and the short notice that was given to people for this event there has only been couple of organisations who have said they can make this.

To fully embrace this opportunity for our region the Birds of Paradise Theatre and Electric Theatre Workshop have decided to reschedule this event for Tuesday the 6th of January @ 11am in Electric Theatre Workshop, 28 Munches Street, Dumfries, DG1 1ET.

To learn more information for your organisation or group then please come along to this information session.

If you wish to attend this meeting to find out more about the project then please RSVP to

We know there are disabled people around the country with the talent and desire to be engaging performers but they haven’t been offered the opportunity to develop this talent. The 2012 Paralympics Opening Ceremony was the perfect evidence of this - disabled people got involved due to the profile of the event and discovered a whole world of disability arts and artists that had been unknown to them. Birds of Paradise Theatre Company have designed the Looking 4 Talent (L4T) programme to find and nurture this talent and, in doing so, to bring more disabled people in to Scottish theatre.

Also if you know of any organization, community group, or individual who may be interested in this project please forward this email onto them.

Kind Regards
