Connecting...

Role

Treasurer, non executive

Playing ON is creating a world where marginalised communities are better understood.  We use theatre as a tool for those with lived experience to connect with gatekeepers in their lives and have their voices heard.  

We disrupt cycles of disengagement by facilitating drama workshops and improvised performances among marginalised groups. Everything we do has a knock on effect and provides inspiration for scripted plays, which we perform in theatres before bringing them back to the original target groups. To date we have worked with prisoners and staff, mental health service users and providers, care experienced young people and social services transforming lives and improving the wellbeing of all.
