Ballyfermot Chapelizod Access Group
Smashing Barriers Drama Collective
‘Access Theatre Project’

The Goal of the Smashing Barriers Drama Collective ‘Access Theatre Project’ is to enable participants to progress towards a stand-alone touring company comprising of disabled actors, family members and carers who will promote disability characters, stories & narratives through Forum Theatre of the oppressed and future stand-alone plays.

The drama Project will raise awareness of the rights of disabled people in the Area's institutional and voluntary locations throughout Ballyfermot & Chapelizod and neighbouring Dublin communities.

While the Smashing Barriers Access actors will focus on scenarios where the main focus is on the barriers experienced by local disabled people, this approach will also invite participants to look a broader equality context by drawing on the experiences of other marginalised groups.

This creative approach gives participants an opportunity to reflect on the challenges facing those regarding social, economic & cultural barriers. The audience will experience a working through of the scenario exploring the barriers that exist, whether they are attitudinal or environmental. This allows the participants to engage with the experience in a more active manner and suggest real progress forward on local and national disabling barriers.
