Let's change the arts

Will YOU support the EBYA Crowdfunder?


Help Diverse City’s extraordinary company of disabled & non-disabled young performers tour their show Becoming.

Diverse City believes the performing arts should be for everybody.

Everybody should have equal opportunities to train, perform and develop their skills because together we can change the world. But many young people never get the chance to explore their talent or to find an audience.


Diverse City’s youth performance company Extraordinary Bodies Young Artists is changing all that. It brings together disabled and non disabled young people to learn together and make shows that change how people think about them.

EBYA are looking for YOUR help to get their next show Becoming out to audiences in Dorset and the south west. They need help to tell their stories, so that people know what they are truly capable of. We need help to make sure that their show is supported by professionals.

EBYA members sat down and standing, pointing to camera and smiling.
