Gig Buddies!

By The Black Box

We are working with Belfast City Council to bring Gig Buddies to Belfast!

The idea behind Gig Buddies is to enable people with learning disabilities and/or autism to enjoy all the great things going on in their community, especially live music! Gig Buddies is a project that pairs up people with and without learning disabilities and/or autism to be friends and to go to events together.
In this video, Aoife from the Black Box team tells you more about it

We have also attached a information page that you can read and share with other people.
If you are over 18, and have learning disabilities and/or autism please complete this short survey because it is important to tell us what you think!
