John Lyons – Akademi – Making Links

Jennifer and ironINC were invited by Akademi to deliver a series of workshops for young people with learning disabilities from Hay Lane School in London. Akademi received generous funding from the John Lyon’s Charity to facilitate the ‘Making Links’ project in partnership with Waterman’s Arts Centre and delivered by ironINC.

Building confidence in working on their own and as a team, the group developed their skills in movement, communication, teamwork and sensitivity. Unique to this project was the opportunity to work with musician and composer, Neil Craig who brought his fabulous expertise in Asian music along with some very fun instruments!

At the end of the week, the participants had the chance to share their work in Waterman’s Theatre.
