Do Your Own Thing

Do Your Own Thing

If you are aged 10-25 and have a learning disability then come along to Do Your Own Thing at the Albany!

These are FREE creative sessions which happen once a month on a Saturday afternoon. They offer training in music, dance, radio DJing and digital arts to young people (aged 10-25 years) with learning disabilities who are new to the arts. Young people get the chance to work on exciting projects with a range of professional facilitators, they decide what they want to do and work together to make it happen.

Do Your Own Thing participants also help programme and perform at The Squidz Club, Heart n Soul's arts club night for young people.


Once a month, on a Saturday, at the new time of 12pm-4pm.
