We are thrilled to announce that our project, Somability, which is being hosted with Cardiff School of Art and Design and co-design partners, Rhondda Cynon Taf Skills for Independence with Artis Community, has been awarded funding through the Rayne Foundation. The ideas for Somability came about following a design Lab that we ran with  adults with learning difficulties, which involved them taking part in stimulating, creative, movement activities in their day care settings.  Our experiences from the lab inspired us to try to find ways to offer these communities access to recreational activities that use the same affordable technologies as the wider population, with musicality and rhythmic, dynamic movement as the primary mode of expression. We are grateful to Tim Leroy at Novatec for donating laptops and Andrew Spooner at Microsoft for donating Kinect cameras.
