We bring people together to experience the arts as active participants through performance, workshops and events.
We know that participating in artistic activity makes people feel better, enables social change and improves health and wellbeing so we believe the arts (and theatre in particular) should be available to everyone!
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. Check out below for our latest projects:
The Creative Toolkit
A lockdown survival kit for 10-13 year olds, packed with activities, games, resources and videos to kickstart your creativity.
Part of Bubble Up, supported by Curious Minds.
20 free kits have been made for young people in Liverpool and a digital version will be made available online in December.
DEEP BLUE Drama Group
A 10 week community theatre project for women in Liverpool to reduce loneliness and isolation.
Led by Paperwork Theatre’s core team of artists, we’ll use storytelling, creative writing, music, movement and digital arts to devise an original performance celebrating the places we feel connected to and our community.
