National Youth Theatre have become one of 18 arts organisations working as Change Partners with Ramps on the Moon over the next year, to work to develop anti-ableism and embed it further into our practices.

Ramps on the Moon is delivering a new programme co-designed and co-created with the sector. Designed to provide sustained and immersive support for performing arts and cultural organisations across the UK. With 12 months of intensive learning, workshops, mentoring, action learning, tools, resources and personal development, the Ramps change programme enables organisations to re-model, re-shape, realign, refocus and reimagine their futures with a focus on embedded anti-ableism. This programme is for organisations who are hungry to lead the sector to become more equitable, innovative, relevant, ambitious, creative and socially just. Ramps on the Moon's vision is for mainstream cultural change across the sector where disabled people can develop, learn, work and tell their stories. The programme is supported by the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation and Ramps on the Moon are partnering with People Make It Work and with the support of their key partner, Sheffield Theatres on the programme.

The 18 Change Partners are Blackpool Grand Theatre, City of London Sinfonia, English Touring Theatre, Exeter Northcott, HighTide, Hull Truck Theatre, Les Enfants Terribles, Mayflower Theatre and MAST Mayflower Studios, National Youth Theatre, New Perspectives Theatre Company, Northern Opera Group, Norwich Theatre, One Dance UK, Production Exchange, Reading Rep, Royal Opera House, Royal Shakespeare Company and Unicorn Theatre.
