During nine Saturday workshops  the group will explore a variety of creative disciplines.

This will culminate in a sharing for friends and family. The team will be supported by a project co-ordinator from Turtle Key Arts.

“I don’t mean to be dramatic about it but Turtle Opera has completely changed our lives. Pascal walked out of the first session, and it was as if “Oh my god, it’s ok to be autistic”. For the first time in his life he picked up the phone and he now talks regularly to his grandparents in Australia. He is a changed child.” Mother of a participant.

Turtle Opera is a Turtle Key Arts partnership with English Touring Opera and Royal College of Music in collaboration with Royal Birmingham Conservatoire. It is funded by Children in Need.
