Gosforth Civic Theatre

Gosforth Civic Theatre is an arts venue, café and community hub in Gosforth, and is home to, and run by, Liberdade Community Development Trust.

Liberdade is a disability arts organisation, which began in 2003 as an apprenticeship scheme with the aim of enabling 8 young people with learning disabilities to set up and run their own physical theatre company. Those 8 original company members, and now many more, show how running an organisation can offer people with learning disabilities choice, and the opportunity to shape the world in which they live.

Like all arts organisations, Liberdade want to change the world, to bring people together to create understanding, to decide what is the new normal by being extraordinary, and shape the community by telling stories and providing a home for everyone to enjoy.
