#CCCreativeOutcomes X The Lowry

The Gallery of Yes

Saying yes! What is a life worth living? What are we masking? No one can see the inner us!

These are some of the interesting themes explored in The Gallery of Yes: creative clowning and performance sessions at Skylight Circus Arts. Skylight Circus continued the partnership with The Lowry, us and our Connecting Communities project to engage a community group invited from Silver Circus and Adult Circus members both with and without disabilities. The project was inspired by Waldos Circus of Magic & Terror and included bringing the group on a trip to the Lowry to see the production .

“The Gallery of Yes is very much about bringing a group together with creative arts for wellbeing.” 

Martine Bradford Creative Director

With local clown teacher Natalie, they explored new inclusive ways of working by being together and supporting participants to take part. Nurturing a creative outlet for exploring our feelings, making friends and sharing their creations! They shared tears, laughter, silly dances and many colourful outfits. They celebrated our developing clown characters with an exciting photo shoot to create ‘The Gallery of Yes’.

“I feel I can be anything when I put this nose on”
