STELLA is a EU Erasmus + project that creates links amongst European partners working to advocate for disabled people's rights and automony.
Partners from ten different countries, including The Playhouse, have formed a strategic partnership, cooperating for innovative changes in different fields of practice and the instigation of social inclusion, diversity and staff's education. The participating partners are organizations from Germany, Poland, Italy, Greece, the United Kingdom, Sweden, France, Lithuania, the Netherlands and Turkey.
The organizations will work on developing working methods for- and with PWD in fields such as: Organizational skills, Social Behavior, Team Ability, Analytical Thinking, Communication Skills, Technical Skills.
Persons with disabilities are invited to take an active role as experts in this project. The final product will be a handbook for Understanding and Improving the Fundamental Competences of People with Disabilities.
The Playhouse was thrilled to launch videos of two original songs written & performed by members of Lilliput Theatre Company in May 2018.
The songs form part of The Playhouse's work for the STELLA project.
Playhouse music tutor Liam Campbell said, "It was a great privilege working with Lilliput in writing workshops - writing the songs together: chords, lyrics and melodies. Seeing these songs come to life in the recording studio with everyone's input was very rewarding. The final recorded songs, the wonderful performances from the members of Lilliput, and the resultant videos are all tangible indicators of the high quality and worth of this project."
