Collective Encounters, is a UK based professional arts organisation specialising in theatre for social change, making new work with new audiences in new spaces that challenges the status quo, tells the hidden stories of life in the margins, and conducts research into innovative practice.
What we do?
Participatory workshops: we work with young people, homeless people and older people locally using theatre to build confidence, develop skills and explore the issues and ideas which matter to them.
Productions: we mount exciting productions that explore pressing social and political concerns, often transforming non-theatre spaces into magical performance places.
Research: through academic and practical research we contribute to the wider national and international field of theatre for social change and spearhead best practice in the UK
