Our projects

A selection of arts projects from our 40 year history

We have over 40 years working in the creative arts with communities so as to promote understanding and support Individuals to enhance and develop new skills. Over the decades we have built a gallery of work with thousands of people, working in schools, in community centres and in our own theatre. Our projects bring together young and old across generations to explore shared feelings of isolation, to celebrate our shared heritages and to become stronger together.

Some of our projects have been turned into books which are available to buy from the cafe or in our online shop
