darts is committed to making our creative activities inclusive and accessible. Most of our family workshops take place at our home in central Doncaster, The Point. We won Best Family Welcome at the national Fantastic For Families Awards in 2019 for our work, making us one of the most accessible arts venues in the country.
All Aboard: Holiday Family Workshops
All Aboard is an opportunity for children with disabilities and their families to get involved in something new – more choice, more opportunities to express themselves and more independence. All Aboard focuses on providing out-of-school activities, whether these are after-school clubs or creative workshops for families during school holidays. These workshops take place at The Point; we have sessions specially designed for children with disabilities, which tailor to their individual needs, followed by sessions that are open to all children. So far our All Aboard families have explored lantern-making, clay, dance and music. You can find out more about All Aboard here.
Saturday Family Workshops
Our Saturday Family Workshops at The Point provide the opportunity for parents or carers to get creative with their child(ren)! Remember to book!
darts hosts a number of inclusive family events at The Point. Our annual #PointFEST event is designed to be entirely accessible and offers a range of high quality artist led activities to get immersed in and performances to watch – read all about it here.
We are proud to meet the national standards to ensure that we are both Family Friendly and Age Friendly. This means that we work hard to provide a welcoming and positive experience for all visitors, regardless of their age.
These Family Arts Standards are led by the Family Arts Campaign and are designed to help families know what they should expect from an organisation, covering the basic considerations of families visiting any time of arts experience. Our meeting the national standards means that we provide an annual and varied programme of high quality activity for children and young people of all abilities at The Point and in a range of community settings.
The Point has full disabled access throughout the building, including a Changing Place Facility which you are welcome to use – just ask at Reception for the fob. We are committed to providing a welcoming space for all.
