Objectives

Spare Tyre is a female artist-led participatory theatre company that seeks to reflect society, challenge its prejudices and make life equal. 

We create theatre with people that are under-represented in arts and culture and society’s decision making at large. Built on more than 40 years experience, our work is participatory, collaborative, immersive, taboo-busting and above all responsive to the passions and talents of the people who make it. 

Our projects visit traditional arts venues, community centres, care homes and online spaces. Meanwhile, we run and amplify creative campaigns that reflect the values and passions of our artists and participants. 

In the 2020s, we will work with more people to create theatre exploring the pressing issues of our time, such as the climate crisis, disability rights and social justice. We’re interested in working with, supporting and training people who want to change the world with us.   

Activities

Our current creative partnerships are with groups supporting: 

  • women who have experience of violence and abuse 
  • learning disabled and neurodivergent people 
  • people living with dementias and their carers
  • people living with long Covid and similar long-term conditions.
