The Keep Moving Project is the next phase of our commitment to the Critical Mass project legacy.
We will continue to strengthen the trust built with over 200 young people, generating learning and insight about inclusion, access and disability for the region and wider sectors, whilst engaging young people in high-quality culture and dance experiences
Origins & Context
Critical Mass was a high-profile dance and movement project that engaged hundreds of young people aged 16-30, with and without disabilities, to come together to perform as a united dance group. The group performed at the Birmingham 2022 Festival opening weekend, the Commonwealth Games opening ceremony at Alexander Stadium, and most recently at Festival 23 in Centenary Square in Birmingham City Centre.

January 2024 – March 2025 Delivery
FABRIC will support the region to continue offering inclusive regular activity to young people in their community, ensuring that the arts sector can sustainably offer inclusive dance for years to come, changing the perception of disability.
We will be working with existing and new partners to deliver a programme of inclusive opportunities across the region, throughout the 2024 year.
Please take a look below at the current activities taking part in the West Midlands. The page will be updated as new opportunities launch and become available.
Keep Moving is programmed & managed by FABRIC, delivered by community partners, and funded by the United by 22 Legacy Charity as part of the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games Enhancement Fund.
