Collective Encounters is a professional arts organisation specialising in theatre for social change through collaborative practice. We use 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 three main areas to our work:
- Workshops and Community Productions: 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.
- Professional Theatre: we mount exciting productions that explore pressing social and political concerns, transforming urban places into magical performance spaces
- Research Lab: 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
