Geographical remit: 


The objects of the charity are to advance education for the public benefit by the promotion of the arts, in particular but not exclusively the art of drama.

We achieve our charitable objective and vision through: 


  • creating new performances and projects that speak directly and dynamically to a wide audience - especially to young people and their families.


  • sharing our artistic skills and understandings with young people through creative learning, heritage and place-making projects.


  • bringing together theatre artists from different backgrounds, countries and training who want to explore the possibilities and conflicts of working in a blend of languages, styles and cultural understandings.


  • being a beacon for young people’s work, sharing our learning, achievements and expertise across the creative industries.


New International Encounter (NIE) is one of the UK’s leading theatre companies producing work for and with young people.We deliver high quality creative projects across the UK with an international outlook, working in a way that allows people of all abilities to access our work as audience, participants, collaborators and creative artists.

NIE’s programme of local, national and international projects reflects, responds to and celebrates the diversity of contemporary England with a global backdrop.
