An Evening of Inclusive Art, Music, Spoken Word and Creativity
The Circus of Sound Cabaret is launching in Eastbourne in March 2019, led by Delta 7 in partnership with other community organisations. This aims to become a regular event, under the banner; “EVERYONE IS WELCOME, EVERYONE IS INCLUDED”. The Cabaret will support adults of all ages, including those who are vulnerable, to share music, comedy, poetry etc in a friendly, social environment; bringing people together to feel connected, safe and valued. This project will combat social isolation, celebrate diversity and empower people by building skills and confidence. With funding support, this project will develop in Eastbourne and throughout East Sussex.
With Partners; Culture Shift, Devonshire Collective, Kiss My Disco, Gig Buddies and Delta 7even.
St Elisabeth’s Church has full disabled access, is a safe space.

Brighton Fringe 2019 Freedom Season
Brighton Fringe 2019 is taking place from 3 May – 2 June.
We are proud to be an open access arts festival, meaning anyone can take part. Our mission at Freedom Season is to bring artists and audiences together and act as a catalyst for creativity. We know that accessing the arts can be more complicated for D/deaf, disabled and neuro-diverse audiences, so in 2018 we created our first Freedom Season.
Now in its second year, the 2019 Freedom Season is a programme of 149 events that are accessible to a range of audiences with particular access needs, including those with visible and invisible disabilities.
The season also showcases and supports the work of D/deaf, disabled and neuro-diverse artists. The season is split into 4 categories:
  • Accessible Events
  • Accessible Venues
  • Events Involving Disabled Artists
  • Events with Themes of Disability

Please share and participate!

No Bedtimes – A DJ’s perspective of clubbers being told what time to leave

Here at Heartventure we would like to promote a campaign that we are passionate about.
We want to get support workers to think about what they’re doing by not enabling the people they support to decide when to leave a night out.
The campaign was prompted by DJ Chris Love. Here he is in a short video in action as a DJ and also talking more about the issue.
To read more, go to this article on the “STAY UP LATE” website.
You can also follow the #NoBedTimes hashtag on Twitter.
Pride 2017 was amazing! We hired a open top bus which was really fun. We shared the bus with another organisation, Grace Eyre, which meant we had a bus full of happy people!
