  2. To increase participation in the arts for those who are excluded due to their socio-economic or cultural background or disability.
  3. To improve the capacity of artists to create new audiences for the arts.

PLATFORM8 THEATRE FESTIVAL / MOVING ROOTS CO-CREATION PROJECT/ HERITAGE PROJECTS A programme of touring and commissioned events which creates new audiences for dance and drama, staged in non-traditional spaces and reimagining existing venues as shared community spaces,  working closely with participants and partners to programme and present work so it is relevant, welcoming and inspiring.
