Hi, my name is Patrick I am James Dad. We were lucky enough to be introduced to Face front through ArtsDepot an inclusive theatre project in Finchley.
Simply James’s experiences at Face Front have been fantastic, Ray, Danny, Lauren and Sarah-Jane have been supportive, friendly and most importantly fun.
James with Danny’s great support works with the Broken silence theatre group in Edmonton. James then comes back and works with the DDM (Youth Group)
James has developed many skills including core life skills such as a greater level of independence away from his core friendship groups, organisation skills, and interpersonal skills. As well as a greater awareness of stage production
Diversity in all parts of life is important because it provides differing insights and perspectives from different people. Diversity in the arts is essential for authenticity as the arts explore issues and raise awareness. Face Front inclusive theatre is a great example of this diversity.
James loves computer games especially Mario, drawing but also loves to sing and perform in the right environment like Face Front.
Long may Face Front and this type of work experience continues as it is essential in the creation of avenues and pathways for disabled people to be engaged in the arts. It is simply a life-changing experience.
