Fuse is a high quality inclusive youth theatre project, bringing together young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) with their non SEND peers, delivered by Connecting Youth Culture in partnership with North Yorkshire County Councils Prevention Service.
There are seven Fuse groups across North Yorkshire, delivering weekly youth theatre workshop delivered by professional theatre makers which lead to two performances per year. The sessions are also staffed by specialist support workers and assistance for transport is also provided.
Annually we partner with professional disability theatre companies to deliver workshop weeks exploring particular themes giving the young people the chance to work with and be inspired by disable facilitator and actors.
Regular theatre trips are organised to visit professional theatre and witness and performance, this is a great opportunity for the young people to socialise outside the regular weekly sessions.
Further development is offered through the County Youth Theatre, providing opportunities for young people to work intensively to devise a theatre show which goes on tour around North Yorkshire. Funding for the project is provided by The Big Lottery Reaching Communities fund and North Yorkshire County Council.
