Fittings Multimedia Arts

Fittings is a disability led national organisation that makes popular theatre characterised by directness, comedy, music, emotion and immediacy working with material, performers and artists that reflect the Uk's diverse cultures. Fittings work is based on new writing and fuses different styles of storytelling, visual and tactile artworks, music, dance, narrative and physical theatre, film, puppetry and sign language to make work based on hidden histories.

Fittings work is accessible and relevant to audiences from diverse communities, ages and educational backgrounds. It is presented in a variety of settings and is accompanied by workshops, outreach programmes and digital content.
