about us

who we are

We are a membership organisation
of around 120 artists

who make performance and spectacle for outdoor spaces ~
the street corners, the town square, the park, the beachfront or a remote rural landscape.

We are performers, dancers, musicians, designers, makers, writers and directors.
Between us we make performance that is intimate and monumental, strolling and static, that plays with words, images, movement, sound and light, that tells stories and offers worlds of wonder for people to play in.
We believe that our strength is in our accumulative breadth of experience. We can all benefit from ongoing learning about our work – from the wisdom earned by years on the road to the fresh invention of those starting out. Our events and initiatives are driven by a desire to share our know-how, to support each other and to open our horizons to what is possible.
There is a democratic quality to outdoor arts. Audiences vote with their feet. Events are mainly free. Without the barriers of conventional staging, we can get up close, look people in the eye and, with a cheeky grin, encourage them to experience their surroundings in new and exciting ways.

What we value

  • The unique ARTISTRY of our members
  • The power of positive PROVOCATION – we are creative catalysts for one another and for the public
  • SHARING – our know how, skills, time and resources, to support more sustainable futures
  • INCLUSIVITY – driving towards a more open, accessible and richly diverse network of artists
  • MUTUAL SUPPORT – being a professional artist is hard and a feeling of solidarity can ease the strain
  • The power of OPTIMISM, in creating work and experiences for audiences and communities
