Detour is committed to making a journey in the arts possible for all. Our mission is to create authentic, accessible theatre opportunities together - for and with adults who do not experience success within the existing theatre community. These adults may have disabilities including (but not limited to) autism, cognitive and physical challenges, deafness and blindness, which require additional support and adaptive techniques. We work to create rewarding programming that supports existing skills and celebrates the development of new ones.
We also serve as a resource to the community--both to support those who want to work in the field of arts and disability, and to those who are eager to celebrate the talent, creativity and artistic potential of all people.
