Creative Families

Collaborative projects with our very youngest audience. Children, their grown-ups, artists and facilitators come together to explore the creation of new theatre experiences for 0-5’s that inspires the youngest imaginations.

Creative Families projects take place outside of formal education settings, with a focus on health and wellbeing and are informed by child development practice. Projects focus on play and creative interaction between children and their grownups and the opportunity to extend this at home. We use ‘families’ in its broadest sense, with an understanding that this can look very different.

“It’s been really fun and a great chance to spend time with my daughter, paying attention to the things she does and doesn’t enjoy… The sessions have been good for me too because I’m not very good at doing silly things in front of people and the facilitators are really inspiring.”
