MEMBER: Learning Through Arts

Learning Through Arts is a voluntary sector arts and creative learning organisation based in Wirksworth that works with people of all ages and experience throughout the county - celebrating individuals, communities and cultural life through creativity and the arts.

With our motto "Inspiration, Inclusion, Innovation" we aim to encourage all people to participate in a variety of arts activity, often developing innovatory processes and projects; and focus on inclusivity, with a particular specialism in working with early years children and young people, and those with learning disability and complex needs.

Learning Through Arts includes the dance theatre work of artist Debi Hedderwick who works with children, young people and adults in contemporary dance, improvisation and choreography both in education and community settings, and makes contemporary dance theatre for performance.

Debi has a specialism in working with young people with complex needs, and has recently pioneered a methodology called Dance Interaction at Yeoman Park and Redgate Special Schools. She also founded and directs Wirksworth INdependDANCE Youth Dance and The Secret Dance Club.

Based in Derbyshire, she has worked in South Africa, Japan (as Derbyshre's Cultural Exchange Artist 2008), and Israel as well throughout the UK, and has had work performed as part of the Cultural Olympiad 2012, at Edinburgh Festival and at the International Youth Arts Festival 2014.
