About DIFFERENT PLANET ARTS

Mission Statement

We are a new inclusive arts charity devising sensory theatre and inclusive arts events for children and young people with complex additional needs and their families to enjoy together. We are based in Lewes and make ambitious, entertaining, and inspiring shows for our audiences in Sussex and the Southeast.

We believe in a world where arts experiences and events are accessible to everyone and celebrated as part of the everyday cultural landscape. We believe that access and participation in cultural and arts experiences are fundamental to the human experience and vital to the health and empowerment of individuals and communities. We enable those who are often excluded and experience social isolation to participate in creative activities alongside family, peers, and within the wider community.

We believe in:

Transformation: The therapeutic value of theatre and the arts and their ability to affect and create positive change in peoples’ lives. Our work is both thought-provoking and fun.

Connection: Participation and collaborative partnerships are central to our work.

Community: Strengthening communities and facilitating access to the arts through the creation of diverse cultural platforms.

What we do

We combine our skills and experience as dramatherapists and play therapists, musicians, storytellers, puppeteers, performers, and visual and digital artists to create truly groundbreaking work that is fresh and vibrant. We integrate therapeutic methodology with interactive environments and high-quality performance to create possibilities for participation and inclusion.

We believe in using the senses as a key component of the work we deliver. We create magical worlds where sight, sound, smell, touch, taste, and movement combine. Our theatre experiences are vehicles for discovery, connection, and community. We produce work with high production values that is satisfying, enjoyable, and therapeutic.
