CAN DO is an artist development project which aims to empower adults with intellectual disabilities to recognise, grow and celebrate their creative talents, skills and abilities removing any sense of limitation that surrounds them.

KCAT Arts Centre and Carlow Arts Festival, working in partnership with Delta Centre, will engage people with intellectual disabilities in Carlow in creative workshops to develop and platform their skills and talents.

Experienced members of Equinox Theatre will mentor them and share their experiences of working as artists. This will open up opportunities for the participants to enter into a career as an artist and enable them to see that they CAN and DO create high-quality artworks.

As part of Carlow Arts Festival 2024, Equinox Theatre Company and dance artist Cindy Cummings will lead a warm-up session like no other.

KCAT is an inclusive arts centre in Callan, Co. Kilkenny. Equinox Theatre Company was founded in 2008 by eight graduates of KCAT’s theatre course who wanted to create opportunities for themselves as professional artists.
