Disability and Inclusion Programmes

Wac Arts offers a range of inclusive performing arts and media opportunities for young people with special educational needs and disabilities. We offer a varied programme with a wide range of activities from inspiring artwork and recording live music to swinging and movement with aerials equipment.

Young people develop skills, work creatively, build confidence and, most importantly, have fun!

“The whole atmosphere inspired him to progress in such a positive way, being able to express himself through drama classes and workshops. He also learnt how to play the saxophone. Wonder Wac Arts has been such a lifeline for my son and me.”

“I was very withdrawn in school and was losing the will to care. I have no idea where I’d be now without Wac Arts; I certainly wouldn’t have done well enough in school to get into college.”
