Attik 360 provides classes for adults with learning and physical disabilities. From the funds raised we will be able to buy equipment for the dancers to allow the sessions to be accessible and inclusive to all of the members. Attik Dance will invite local dance and theatre groups to perform; our aim is to bring 170 local people into the newly renovated venue. The event will promote the arts and also local businesses and organisations within the area.
Attik are looking for local businesses to sponsor the event, to be a part of the celebration and the regeneration of Devonport. In order for this event to be successful and to raise sufficient funds for Attik 360 programme, we need exciting businesses and organisations to donate costs for food and refreshments for the night, raffle prizes, running costs of the event, decoration, costs for marketing etc, so that this event is like no other.
We would like to say a big Thank you to Print Options in Millbrook and David Folley for making this event possible.
