We bring people together to experience art as active participants through performance, workshops and events. We do this as we believe the arts (and theatre in particular) is fantastic and should be available to everyone! But we also know that participating in artistic activity makes people feel better, enables social change and improves health and wellbeing.
So we’re committed to delivering community based arts activities alongside each of our productions and as stand alone projects, so as many people as possible can experience these benefits.
