The Young Creatives Project is a collaboration project with GMCDP, Archives+ and Contact. It gives time for young disabled people to share lived experiences, research the history of disabled protest and develop creative skills.

For months, the Young Creatives have worked together online to develop creative skills and learn the history of the Disabled People’s Movement. Now, they’re taking over Contact to share their responses and their lived experience with the world through DIS:Play. DIS:Play is an immersive living history museum created by young disabled creatives.

They are working towards staging the less well-known history of the Disabled people’s movement – 102 years of history fighting for the rights of disabled people. With performances at Contact Theatre on 9th April 2022.

Combining live performance, sensory spaces, and digital installations, this hybrid event has access and activism at its heart.

What does it mean to be young and unapologetically disabled?

“The story of those braves before us and our needs now.

We are still here. Having to spend our lives protesting to live.

These are our wishes for the future. Disabled people have dreams too.”
