Weave is a disability theatre company. Since the lockdown, we have been unable to meet in person. Members are feeling the isolation. Most are vulnerable to Covid19 due to their disability.  Most don't have good digital access. Usually we provide artistic expression, improved physical and mental health and a stable social network for people with a range of disability. We always operate on a shoe string, seeking funding constantly. Even the hours for the one paid person have additional voluntary hours attached. This company has been going for 22 years and many disabled people who enjoy and have talent for performing have passed through. WE collaborate with respected artists to boost the skills of the disabled artists, to increase their confidence and pride in their work. We run public workshops, as well as creating original stage work in collaboration with the Weave performers and guest astusts/directors. The organisation was the first disability led disability theatre company in Australia. The Artistic Director won the inaugural Australia Council National Disability Arts Award. We seek to change stereotypes about disability and to have disability arts known to a much wider audience.
