In 2016 we created Limitless, a pilot project that explored good practice in using drama and theatre methodologies with autistic children, teenagers and young adults.
The partnership came about through isolated conversations between the organisations about their standalone projects and campaigns around the positive engagement of people with autism in our respective work. These conversations led us to collectively recognising our shared interest in, and commitment to, developing a framework for the engagement of autistic people in creative activity as artists, audiences and participants.
We have made a commitment to work together over the next five years to test the boundaries of our understanding of the potential of a creative autistic life, and challenge barriers that autistic people of all ages face when engaging in drama and theatre, as performers or audience members, through the piloting of several new projects.
