Voice Arts

By Appointment

Playfully enabling meaningful change for people, places and communities.

Voice Arts is a unique creative space that supports the social and emotional wellbeing of under-served communities. They provide free access to drama-based creative programmes where participants find their voice, their story and develop the skills to share both.  Programmes are delivered to people within their own neighbourhoods, using existing community spaces that are familiar and accessible. The programmes are led by theatre practitioners trained by Voice Arts in use of applied improvisation, devised theatre, and storytelling. They work with older people, including those living with dementia. They also focus work on supporting the cultural development of former refugee / new migrant youth, their parents and grandparents.
