Vital Xposure is a disabled-led touring theatre company that promotes hidden voices with extraordinary stories to tell.
The company was founded by disabled artist and activist Julie McNamara, who led the company’s creative work and artistic vision for its first decade. From January 2021, the torch has been passed on to actor, playwright and activist, Simon Startin.
A fairer world for marginalised artists to become creative leaders, with their work celebrated in the heart of our culture.
- We will create new, innovative performances and projects relevant to and representative of our communities.
- We will engage audiences with previously hidden stories to broaden understanding of our society and ourselves.
- We will remove barriers for d/Deaf, disabled and Neurodivergent artists, to increase their skills, confidence, and visibility both nationally and internationally.
- Our inclusive disabled-led work will bring positive change, through sector leadership, creative collaborations, and intersectional practice.
Our values are: Social Justice; Excellence; Inclusion; Integrity; Collaboration
