We’re always seeking new collaborations and partnerships, from all types of organisations, sectors and places. We’d love to work together on innovative ideas large and small, whether that’s a pioneering new performing arts festival or stocking a handful of extra books written by learning-disabled authors in your local library. Or if you don’t have a tangible idea, but you’re interested in the work and just want to talk, we’re happy to grab a cuppa.

Here’s what some of our partner organisations have to say about working with us:

It’s a successful partnership that helps Birmingham Hippodrome to fulfil its ambition of being a place where people of all backgrounds, ages and abilities can be welcomed both as audience members, and as participants and performers.

Their work is vital, as it allows young people to create in entirely different ways, encourages openness and acceptance of difference: we need more of this in the British cultural landscape. We are very proud to work with Open Theatre.

Culture Coventry have worked with Open Theatre for the last five years to offer young people with learning disabilities (YPWLD) a wide range of experiences to develop confidence and communication skills.

They have helped our learners to use creative methods to help to convey their feelings and ideas but also to feel engaged within a group, lessening their anxiety in working with new people.
