Our Space

Our Space

Our Space is a creative programme of work for people who would like to build confidence whilst learning theatre skills in a fun and supportive environment. We’re a friendly, welcoming group and no previous experience is required.

Our Space works with adults with multiple and complex needs, members come from all walks of life and may have faced challenges involving homelessness, mental health issues, re-offending or substance misuse, or they may feel excluded for other reasons.

“It’s something to look forward to, because a lot of the situations we’ve been in, they create isolation … Doing drama helps you reconnect with people, we have all been knocked off our feet at some point.” – Project participant

Our Space offers three levels of engagement:

• Community hub drama workshops held in partnership with local services and organisations, providing the opportunity for participants to engage with the project in a space that is familiar
• Weekly workshops in drama held at the Theatre’s Production and Learning Centre, TR2. These workshops aim to improve self-esteem, well-being and skills in communication, decision making, risk taking and team work.
• Project X bespoke training sessions for longer standing members to gain further skills that are transferable into everyday life.
