Branchline

A new route into creative health and wellbeing for learning disabled children and young people.

Founding partners 2017:

Lifeworks Charity Ltd, Play Torbay, SPLASH, Soundart Radio, Dance in Devon, Daisi, Dartington Hall Trust and RIO (Real Ideas Organisation)

We are Branchline.

We are social care, play and arts people.

We believe all young people have the right to experience and explore creativity.

We support learning disabled young people to take part, lead and progress in the arts.

Branchline is about social care providers, young people, and arts organisations working together to enhance opportunities for learning disabled young people to take part, lead and progress in the arts.

Daisi artists including Vince Miles, Kate Green, Rachel Thame and Anne-Marie Moss are leading arts experiences designed to support young people’s confidence and communication. The activities are fun, creative and participative. They include movement and dance, music making, learning ribbon spinning and balancing skills, and sculpting from the earth and from clay.

The artists are currently working with young people aged 6-19 from Splash holiday club (Buckfastleigh), and aged 12-25 from Lifeworks holiday club (Dartington).  For a full programme of what’s happening and how to book for 2018 please click here.
