Movers Make Sense

Movers Make Sense is a collaborative project with the School of Medicine and Movers Theatre Company – a learning disabled theatre company in Leicester, based at Attenborough Arts Centre.

Movers Theatre Company are inviting medical students from University of Leicester to work with them to develop a new play, a digital toolkit, and a short film. We have a dynamic team of arts professionals working with us - playwrite and director: Jayne Williams, theatre maker: Charlotte Bond and film maker: Bill Newsinger.

This project aimed to:

  • help medics gain understanding of the spectrum of learning disabilities
  • share examples of good practice for supporting and communicating with people with learning difficulties
  • foster improved doctor-patient relationships in the community
  • improve public perception of disability
