Socially Inclusive Music Theatre engages and embraces indigenous, homeless, disabled and wider community groups across the race, faith, generation, gender and socio-economic divides.
An arts-based intervention, it is effective in the rehabilitation of people following incarceration and it has positive impacts upon mental health of people with chronic long- term disabling conditions.
Under the leadership of Mr Warren Wills, internationally acclaimed writer, composer and producer of SIMT projects, Upbeat Arts will support the creation, production and performance of SIMT projects in 2019 and 2020.
We will engage over 500 marginalised people. Our creative and technical teams will work with participants on all aspects of the projects and deliver professional music theatre productions to the stage in professional theatre settings.
