UCAN Productions (Unique Creative Arts Network) is an award-winning cooperative which was established in 2005 to address the lack of performance and creative opportunities for blind and partially sighted children and young people in Wales. Since then, the organisation has grown to over 700 visually impaired members who are aged between 7 and 25 years old. The organisation also works throughout the UK and Internationally.


UCAN Productions develops specialised drama workshops and theatrical performances that challenge the perceptions of the sighted world. By improving physical and vocal confidence and raising the aspirations of its members, UCAN has proved, many times, that visual impairment is no barrier to success in the world of performing arts and beyond.
