SiD had an incredible time at the Opening Doors Association Symposium in November 2017. The symposium based in the beautiful historic city of Valletta focused upon inclusivity, artistic development and accessibility.

Rachel presented a paper on devising work for performance and the artistic work of Shropshire Inclusive dance and Contact performers Kevin and Chloe performed their duet Father, Daughter followed by a post show Q&A, receiving a s
tanding ovation.

It was a fantastic opportunity to meet people from many different countries, participate in workshops, listen to a number of inspiring presentations and spend time with friends eating delicious food! A legacy of the symposium is the publication of a book, SiD has been asked to contribute a chapter, providing a fantastic opportunity to share our practice and approach with a wider audience

Thanks you Jo Butterworth President of Opening Doors Association for inviting us along.
