Engagement

Engagement is integral to the development of our work, on and off the stage.

Through creative workshop programmes with community groups, charities and young people we develop new audiences and artists for new writing and increase opportunities for cultural engagement amongst communities across Wiltshire and the South West. Our work is rooted in these communities, who are our inspiration as well as our audience. 

All of our engagement work is co-designed with our partner organisations and the beneficiaries we want to engage. This ensures we can both identify and establish means to overcome any barriers they may face (e.g. financial, geographic, accessibility)

In supporting and employing practitioners in and from Wiltshire and the wider South West we encourage talent retention across the region.

"Thank you very much. This activity is helpful for us. Sometimes we need enjoy, funny time. In this way we can escape our problem."

“The Folio workshops were a completely new experience for the women. It was fantastic to see them developing their confidence to perform. There was so much laughter in the room and the women appeared more relaxed after the sessions. This is important given the stresses that being in the asylum system can give”
Mia O’Sullivan, Harbour Project
“Your involvement in raising awareness of our work with carers and directly setting up workshops for young carers’ benefit is beyond what we could have imagined”
