WORK WITH US
We work to a socially-engaged project structure, putting participants at the centre.
Running focus groups or interviews allows us to put the participants at the centre from the very start. Speaking to the participants before a project begins allows them to co-produce the project with us, allowing agency and making sure participants benefit as much as possible.
We focus on creating collaborative and participatory workshops that open discussions and create connections. Using innovative and creative activities we explore ideas of storytelling, identity, wellbeing and creative activism on a range of issues.
We curate engaging exhibitions filled with life, showing everything created from artworks to performances to discussions. The emotional response people have seeing their work displayed is the highlight of any project.
Finally we create a social impact report and evaluate our work. This is important in understanding how we can continue this work and practicing socially-engaged arts projects with further community groups across the UK.
For more examples of our socially-engaged project structure in action take a look at our current project Can You Hear Me Now? with Manchester Central Foodbank or The Student House Stories with Shelter.
We're available to work on freelance projects, workshops sessions or creative commissions. We have experience working in many areas, including project management, workshops, community engagement, marketing and creative design.
