Rebits'n'Pieces - June News
On 18th May, Cara and Heidi had the pleasure of conducting a 3-hour drama workshop at the Aids Action Council’s Encampment weekend for LGBTQIA+ Youth. They had loads of fun playing games and creating a range of stories; including a reality TV zombie apocalypse! It was a pleasure to be immersed in a weekend full of creativity, acceptance and fun. We can’t wait for the next one!
Organisational Capacity Building
Rebus was successful in our application for the National Disability Insurance Agency’s ‘Disabled Peoples and Families Organisations’ grant round through the Information Linkages and Capacity Building program.

The grant will also fund the development of a theatre-based job readiness course for people with intellectual disabilities.
