More About The Organisation

Organisation Details

About Us

acta uses the power of theatre to change people’s lives. We do this by involving people in creating their own original plays and performance projects. Our unique ability to actively involve the hardest to reach sections of society is universally admired and respected.

We believe that theatre belongs to everyone, and everyone has a story to tell. Their voices are often not heard, so acta creates a place where everyone’s story matters, where individual opinions and experiences count, and are valued by others. We enable communities to share their stories, and engage at least 4 out of 5 audience members who rarely attend theatre.

Our projects create positive change in individuals, raising aspirations and improving skills, confidence, self-worth & employability; we enable people to work together, make theatre and have fun.

acta helps people from excluded communities in and around Bristol to create their own original theatre and arts projects. acta's key priorities are young people, neighbourhood arts and community theatre.
