Turtle Key Arts
Turtle Key Arts is a leading UK arts organisation with a mission to produce and devise original, inclusive art to entertain and inspire.

They produce a number of innovative and original theatre, dance and circus companies including the internationally renowned Ockham’s Razor and the unique integrated Amici Dance Theatre Company. They have a long track record of pioneering and running excellent arts projects, free to all participants, for disabled, disadvantaged and socially excluded people including young people with autism spectrum conditions, dyslexia or living with HIV and Turtle Song for people with dementia and their companions. In a typical year their projects reach a national and international audience of 30,000, they work with up to 3000 participants and involve around 250 artists and 20 volunteers.
