Now You See Us
ARTitude: The fun-filled youth led project that uses creative and imaginative methods to explore attitudes to disability. Participants have the opportunity to develop artistic experience and showcase talent, whilst promoting disability awareness to foster more positive attitudes and mutual respect amongst all young people.
Running for over a decade, the overarching aim is to increase awareness and encourage positive attitudes at an early age. Since September 2011, hundreds of young people across N.Ireland have been busy turning their creative skills and talents into a tool for exploring attitudes to disability, sharing experiences in film-making, animation, drama, poetry, and arts workshops.
The festival closes with two finale events: ‘Future Flicks’ – a screening of films made by young people with the support of MovieHouse Cinemas, and ‘Now You See Us’ – a unique showcasing of artistic talent exhibited at the Golden Thread Gallery from 28th March to 17th April.
ADAPT Development Manager Caroline Shiels commented: “We are delighted that the 2012 festival is proving to be a resounding success, and we appreciate the vital support from Golden Thread Gallery who help us to provide young people of all abilities the opportunity to express their opinion and showcase their talent”
