Community has always been at the heart of Theatre Delicatessen. Our meanwhile projects are set up to support the local community. We believe that cultural spaces can transform an area, empowering the community by providing access to a range of creative resources. We work in partnership with other charitable organisations and non-profits to ensure that our impact is far-reaching and our spaces are accessible to all.
With place-making and space activation becoming increasingly important in building development, Theatre Delicatessen is uniquely placed to help developers and councils bring spaces to life.
Interactive and participatory artforms are an excellent way to engage with local communities.
Our artists specialise in creating work that's both by and for the local community. These have included an award-winning virtual reality project about the history of the local area and a promenade production that was created using stories of a city.
We also work with local organisations to provide arts activities to vulnerable groups who wouldn't otherwise have access to the arts. These have included local branches of Crisis, Age UK and Refugee UK.
