mencap doing carnival

Strange Cargo are proud to have been approached by Mencap to produce a guide to enable people with a learning disability to be fully involved in the creative processes of Carnival.

Called “Doing Carnival”, it is part of a series of Mencap Doing Arts guides covering a range of art forms. This booklet is to be published in late October/early November in the run-up to the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games as part of the programme of community celebrations.

The guidebook is full of advice, signposts and designs to enable everyone to have the skills to make costumes and take part in a carnival, either as a participant, or an organiser.
