First running in 2010, Disability History Month, is an annual event creating a platform to focus on the history of disabled people’s struggle for equality and human rights.
This year, Disability History Month takes place between 16th November – 16th December 2022, the joint themes being Disability, Health and Well Being.
For more than 30 years Wac Arts have delivered specialist creative opportunities for those living with a disability, providing fun, creative opportunities for young people to express themselves, build friendships and develop new skills.
We deliver the London Borough of Camden’s commissioned Shorts Breaks service for disabled young people. Young people are referred to our service, and we support them to achieve the best possible outcomes whilst being a part of a social group.
On Wednesday evenings Wac Nites welcomes young people with mild to moderate learning disabilities. There are three age groups: Spark (9-12), Ignite (13-17) and Urban Motivation (18-30). Young people are encouraged to engage in a variety of Performing and Creative Arts sessions, working towards the sharing of their work at the end of each term. Sessions are tailored to the needs of the group, and the topics and activities change each term to provide a rounded experience.
We would like to take this opportunity to celebrate the achievements of Wac Arts young people living with a disability.
