If all the world’s a stage, then theatre is for everyone. Curtain up. Come and play.
We believe the power of the arts can transform lives, build communities and improve wellbeing but we know not everyone has equal access to creative activities or that activities are designed with all communities in mind. We prioritise working with communities who have the fewest opportunities and co-design our activities with those communities.
We have three areas of activity:
Behind the stage doors
We offer workshops and experiences to increase a love and knowledge of theatre across our community. From hands-on theatre-making workshops to pizza and a play lunchtime readings.
Taking Centre Stage
Our Productions place relevant, contemporary stories co-created with communities at the centre of theatre production in Brighton and beyond.
Smoke and Mirrors
Our research aims to discover and share more about the relationships held with contemporary culture by those with low socio-economic backgrounds. We also review our own ways of working and share this to encourage wider learning.
