That’s Life, an arts, leisure and personal development programme which is part of the Brothers of Charity Organisation Galway, are organising a new club night for young adults with intellectual disabilities in the Róisín Dubh once a month on a Monday night.
That’s Life aims to make the arts more accessible to people with intellectual disabilities.
Their mission is to offer opportunities for people to discover and realise their artistic potential through participation in high quality arts programmes and to support the creation of beautiful work that enriches people’s lives and the life of their community.
DJ and VJ training is one of the elements that they have developed at That’s Life as well as Electric Dreams, six piece indie pop outfit consisting of four people with intellectual disabilities and two professional Galway musicians.
For eight years That’s Life have been hosting Club Tropicana in the Black Box and it has always been a sell-out event. Given the ongoing success of this they decided to create more opportunities for their DJs, VJs and club goers to access club nights more regularly.
Bounce Club Night is a new club night for people with intellectual disabilities. Their aim is to create a fun, safe and accessible space for young adults with intellectual disabilities to socialise, listen to music and dance in a club environment. All their DJs and VJs with intellectual disabilities are supported by experienced Galway DJs and VJs and play a wide range of music including pop, rock, hip hop and R&B.
The first night takes place on Monday 27 March from 8pm-11pm in the Róisín Dubh. Admission is €5. The venue is wheelchair accessible.
