Caudwell Children transforms the lives of disabled children across the UK, acting as a safety net for families who are unable to gain the help they need. Since it was founded in March 2000, Caudwell children has helped more than 58,000 children and families, supporting children with more than 650 different medical conditions and providing more than £45m of services.
‘All Roads Lead To Alexander’ is a new and exciting project that will feature a unique series of music and arts workshops, for disabled and non-disabled children and young people, that will showcase the talent of West Midlands communities.
Following a grant received from the ‘Spirit of 2012’ funding body, and working in partnership with a number of organisations across the locality (including, in Smethwick, SAFS), Caudwell Children will deliver over 100 creative and cultural workshops, in partnership with the specialist music group K’antu Ensemble. The workshops will lead to the co-creation of a live mass participation performance of all the young people at an iconic Birmingham venue.
The Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games will be staged at various venues across the West Midlands, including at the flagship Alexander Stadium in the city of Birmingham. Our workshops will run alongside the sporting event, as part of the wider cultural festival.
