Polyglot Theatre (AUS) and Oily Cart (UK) invite children and young people with complex disabilities and their families to experience a sensory, creative play session at ArtPlay.

Together, you’ll explore a strange and wondrous natural world, with sound, light, shadow, performance and play unfolding amongst living foliage.

These sessions are for children and young people who often face the greatest barriers to access, their siblings and their adults.

Please note:

A total of five people can be accommodated per family booking. Each session may have up to eight families.

'Families' may include siblings, parents, other family members, friends, and support workers of participant children and young people with complex disabilities.

You will be sent a visual story so that you can prepare beforehand.

You can arrive and leave at any time during your booked session.
