We’re incredibly proud and honoured that Wondrous Stories, the opening show of the Birmingham 2022 Festival won the prestigious Access All Areas award in the Diversity and Inclusion category, at a ceremony in London on the 12th of January.
Wondrous Stories was a free outdoor show with diversity, inclusion and opportunity at its heart. It was created and directed by Kevin Finnan MBE, Artistic Director of Motionhouse, who was choreographer and movement director of the Opening Ceremony of the London 2012 Paralympic Games and produced by female-led production company, Outdoor Places Unusual Spaces (OPUS).
Access All Areas supports and showcases the power, creativity and successes of the outdoor and live events industry. Wondrous Stories was recognised for its inclusive practices not only on stage, but behind the scenes and for audiences.
