SOMETHINGS in Development

Gemma Gallagher

Devised by a company of performers with intellectual disability, Shadowbox and Gemma Gallagher were back in Mermaid working with a creative team. It is important to Mermaid that the work we present reflects the rich array of creative people in our community. What working with shadowbox represents is artistic excellence and ambition. The artists on stage are nothing short of remarkable. Engagement in Arts and Culture helps us to collaborate, empathise and problem solve but what these artists will do is share with us and they will teach us. More than what they themselves have learned – we see democracy, inclusivity and equality.
