Armley: Help make sensory storytelling come to ‘cultural coldspot’


Interplay Theatre is raising £2,000 to fund accessible sensory storytelling for young people in the cultural coldspot of Armley, writes Harriet Meeuwissen-True.

Armley is a recognised cultural coldspot in West Leeds with quality of living environment in the lowest 8% in the UK and education in the worst 5%.

Interplay Theatre Trust (The National Sensory Theatre) want to improve quality of life and access to arts and culture by providing 20 magical sensory storytelling sessions in Armley.

The sessions would be for young people with and without disabilities after school on Tuesdays throughout winter 2018.

Sharing cultural stories from all over the world, this funding will pay for deprived young people to experience new worlds told by a sensory storyteller, inside a 360 dome with projections, music, food and smells.

If you would like to support our project and help us reach our target you can donate below through our Crowdfunding page. No donation is too small – we are grateful for any support people are able to give.
