KTM Design are proud to support Diverse City and are sponsoring their latest tour 'Becoming'.
They are an extraordinary company of disabled and non-disabled young performers. Their new show 'Becoming' is about identity and the reality of growing up. They tell the stories of how it feels to be them, the story of their journeys, how they started and who they are becoming...it is the stories that they want to tell.
"Everybody should have equal opportunities to train, perform and develop their skills because together we can change the world." - Diverse City
Many young people never get the chance to explore their talent or to find an audience, so Diverse City's company Extraordinary Bodies Young Artists are changing all that. They bring together disabled and non disabled young people to learn together and make shows that change how people think about them.

Director Katie previously worked with Diverse City and Extraordinary Bodies Young Artists on a performance set design project.
Directors Tyrone and Katie attended the Dorset FA County Cup Finals on the 17th April 2016 in Ferndown as sponsors of the event. The company is keen to support grass-roots football to give something back to the sporting community.
Director Tyrone Mings uses his position as a Premier League Footballer to his advantage for promoting the important charity work he continues to get involved with.
Tyrone assisted fellow team mate Callum Wilson, most recently, educating young students (pictured above) about discrimination and the effects it has on people both on the pitch and in general life, and how to overcome this. Tyrone emphasised how important it is to recognise this and encouraged the students to report such incidents to create a better environment for everyone. Tyrone speaks of the charity work...
“I’m from a Caribbean heritage and I believe previous generations of my family would have been exposed to discrimination, so it’s essential for me, as a Premier League footballer, to send out the right messages and to help take positive steps towards equality for all.”
In 2015 Tyrone supported the Muscular Dystrophy UK Sports Quiz (pictured above) raising funds and awareness to the muscle weakening disease.
KTM Design were the proud sponsors of the Dorset FA Cup 2016 and gave out winner's cups at the Dorset FA Finals Day on Sunday 17th April 2016.
