The Nonsensemakers set up a subsidiary troupe which aim to foster mutual understanding among people with different disabilities (including physically handicap, visual impairment, hearing difficulty and ex-mentally illness) and able-bodied people in 2013. The 2-year project is funded by Community Investment and Inclusion Fund (CIIF) under Labour and Welfare Bureau, HKSAR government. We believes that through theatre training and performance, the disabled can better integrate into the society and show their talents through this platform. On the other hand, the able-bodied can gain inspirations, positive and indomitable spirit from their disabled peers. The grant from CIIF will be ended in this September, we are asking for YOUR help to keep the troupe sustainable.
