all aboard returns to the point
Creative sessions for disabled children and young people and their families
Thanks to generous donations through our Crowdfunder campaign and a grant from Doncaster VCFS Fund, All Aboard sessions are returning to The Point!
darts artists will be running a new Art Club and regular holiday creative sessions for Disabled children and young people, starting in April. We believe that all Doncaster children and young people should have equal access to high quality arts, creative and cultural activity, regardless of ability or need. All sessions are free and siblings are welcome.
Children and young people can take part positive and enjoyable creative activities that develop a range of skills including communication, decision-making, resilience and independence. Professional artists will use different artforms including drama, music technology, songwriting, percussion, print making and sculpture. Our approach is person-led, meaning that each session responds to the needs, interests and abilities of young people in the room.
One parent has been bringing her son to All Aboard sessions at The Point for many years – she says:
“For anyone who hasn’t heard of darts or The Point and wants to know why these All Aboard sessions are a positive thing for Doncaster, I’d say that there aren’t many places in the area where access is this good. The service that the artists provide is excellent and the opportunity to get together and socialise with peers is wonderful. The Point is one of the most beneficial places with the most beneficial events I can think of. I can’t sing its praises highly enough!”
