Connecting Communities

We have commissioned 21 Somerset artists to use theatre as a means for creating healthy, culturally connected communities across the county.  

Through these commissions, we are engaging with different Somerset communities to develop new ways of bringing people together safely.

This commission has been funded by Arts Council England, The Leche Trust and The Garfield Weston Foundation.

We will profile this work as it develops right here.  If you'd like to hear more about our work, join our mailing list.
