‘Doing… carnival’ is a new title in learning disability charity Mencap’s ‘Doing… arts’ series of guides. The aim of the new guide is to support people with a learning disability to become fully involved in carnival ahead of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic games. It outlines how to choose themes, design and make costumes and how to take part in parades.
The guide has been written by carnival company, Strange Cargo, in partnership with Mencap’s national arts development manager, Gus Garside. It has been awarded the London 2012 Inspire mark – a badge that recognises exceptional and innovative projects inspired by the 2012 Games.
