During eight Saturday workshops the group will explore a variety of creative disciplines. The autistic young people will work with a professional composer and director to work as a team to create their own group performance of music and story. This will culminate in a sharing for friends and family. The team will be supported by a project co-ordinator from Turtle Key Arts.
“I don’t mean to be dramatic about it but Turtle Opera has completely changed our lives. Pascal walked out of the first session, and it was as if “Oh my god, it’s ok to be autistic”. For the first time in his life he picked up the phone and he now talks regularly to his grandparents in Australia. He is a changed child.” Mother of a participant.
Turtle Opera Bristol is a Turtle Key Arts partnership with English Touring Opera in collaboration with Bristol Beacon and funded by Children in Need.
