Want to know whose involved in ADA inc? Read on...
ADA inc was started by Jo Verrent, a consultant, creator and trainer who has worked with many of the UK's leading strategic bodies within the creative and cultural sector (you can try googling her name - there's pages!)
So what's different about Jo (and therefore about ADA inc)? In a word, its diversity. Diversity is central to Jo's approach. She thrives on working with the differences between people rather than settling for bland mediocrity and works to give others an ability to transcend many of the projections of fear and mistrust so commonly associated with 'difference'.
Within ADA inc, Jo often creates teams of experienced trainers, consultants and collaborators. Amongst many others, she's recently worked with the following:
Sarah Pickthall (Cusp inc)
Sarah has worked with Jo lots - and they are great together! Currently they are working on Sync, the leadership development programme for disabled people funded by Cultural Leadership Programme.
Mark Wright (People Create)
Mark is working with Jo and Sarah on Sync, the leadership development programme for disabled people funded by Cultural Leadership Programme. People Create are experts in leadership and development - for individuals and organisations.
Sarah Scott divides her time between the arts world and her alternative practices with yoga and nutrition - which makes her a fascinating person to work with. Sarah has worked with Jo on a number of projects, in particular, assessing inclusive provision in dance and drama schools. She is also part of DALI (Disability Action Learning Initiative).
Mind the Gap
Mind the Gap is a national touring theatre company and an artists agency - with a difference. The difference is that their actors have learning disabilities. Don't underestimate them - they work on TV, radio and have performed in some of the best theatres in the company - in Mind the Gap's productions and those by other theatre companies too.
