Collective Encounters

Rediscovering the Radical is curated by Collective Encounters.

Collective Encounters is a professional arts organisation specialising in theatre for social change through collaborative practice. Collective Encounters uses theatre to engage those on the margins of society, telling untold stories and tackling the local, national and international concerns of our time. There are four main areas to their work:

Participatory programmes: working with with young people, adults and older people offering sustained and long terms participatory programmes, using theatre to build confidence, develop skills and explore the issues and ideas which matter to them.

Productions and events: mounting exciting productions in non-traditional spaces that look to excite, entertain and stimulate debate.

Research: researching theatre for social change practice nationally and internationally with a view to spearheading best practice in the UK.

Training: using training and capacity building initiatives to develop the capacity of the arts and non-arts sector to deliver high-quality participatory arts activities.
