What would it feel like to live in a place that is truly inclusive? Designed with you, not for you. Not just the bricks and mortar, but also the values and the rules.

Find out in We Will Be Happy Here, our new multi-sensory experience that opens for learning disabled adults, both in-person and online, in August 2021. 

We're creating it with our friends from Bangladeshi Parents and Carers Association in Bethnal Green. 

See below for information on how to book to visit between August 16 and 20.

The Experience 

We Will Be Happy Here is an multi-sensory project of music, sights, sounds and tactile stimuli made with and for learning disabled people. It can be experienced online or in-person by one social bubble time at a time. 

In workshops we'll explore with you what you think makes somewhere a good place to live and can be enjoyed by all its residents.

We'll then take you on an hour long journey through the place that you have helped shape. With our “tour guides” to help, you get to create your own version of HERE and share it with other people who will come after and pass on their ideas.  

HERE isn’t stuck in tradition.  

HERE is constantly reinventing and finding new solutions and new possibilities.  

HERE is where you can be yourself, real or imaginary, present, future, past.  

Who knows where you could end up?
