Who we are

We believe in every individual’s right to take part in cultural activity. We are dedicated to being a place of possibility, a space for creative bravery and a home for inspiring artistic expression. Whether you attend a workshop or create a show, you will work with practitioners who are experts in their field and who put compassion and inclusion at the heart of everything they do.
