Blue Apple Theatre - the United Kingdom
Best Arts-Enabled Learning Disability Charity - South England
Founded in 2005, Blue Apple is an ambitious theatrical company that supports performers with learning disabilities to present high quality productions to the widest possible audience – performing and touring theatre, dance and film within a variety of venues. Blue Apple is committed to developing integrated and meaningful opportunities within the arts for people with learning disabilities to raise the ceiling of expectation and advocate for a more inclusive and equal society.
