About Us

Our Aim

To create arts and culture projects that challenge discrimination and explore the positive values of diversity within society. Our artistic programme is driven by our desire to involve people in making art that responds to identity and locality. We create contemporary work that explores people’s responses to where they live, to cultural works and creates opportunities people may not have previously encountered. In particular we look at hidden stories, empowering ordinary people through the experience of making theatre, connecting people from different areas and different backgrounds to each other.

Our home

We are based at the Lawrence Batley Theatre in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire and we work across the north of England in some of our most diverse and challenging boroughs.
