“This Town Of Ours” – Out Next Week


“This Town Of Ours” by Extraordinary Bodies Young Artists

Since the beginning of lockdown, our young artists have been creating new digital work around their show “Till We Win”. They have been working with Biggerhouse Film and talented musician and composer Harry Bassett on a new piece called “This Town Of Ours”. They are now ready to share it with the world!

“This Town Of Ours” is about fighting back and gaining a voice. It’s about celebrating ‘difference’ and diversity in our community. EBYA stand in solidarity with #WeShallNotBeRemoved – the UK disability arts alliance that supports D/deaf, neurodivergent and disabled creatives and organisations through and after Covid-19.

This Town Of Ours is a direct response to being in lockdown, wanting to keep our creativity thriving and making our voices heard. It’s our message to our community and a demand for respect, equality, unity in the world.” The EBYA Team
