Collective Encounters is a professional arts organisation specialising in theatre for social change through collaborative practice. We use theatre to engage those on the margins of society, telling untold stories and tackling the local, national and international concerns of our time.

Established in 2004 Collective Encounters delivers participatory theatre programmes with geographical communities and communities of interest across the Liverpool City Region and in 2019 we launched a Centre for Excellence in Participatory Theatre to provide training, advocacy and networking for the national and international participatory arts movement.


Since 2004 Collective Encounters has been using theatre as a tool for positive social change. Our mission is to ensure people affected by poverty & inequality in the Liverpool City Region (LCR) enjoy the personal, community & educational benefits of high-quality theatrical
We achieve this by providing bespoke participatory theatre projects designed to meet the needs of & achieve positive outcomes with the isolated & marginalised communities they serve.
