Theatre Deli works with theatremakers, artists and property developers to expand opportunities for people to make, participate in and experience art. 

We passionately believe in the social, psychological, political and economic benefits of making and experiencing art and culture. Our mission is to enable people to make art for themselves, for others and for their communities. 

To create these opportunities we believe in doing things differently, providing alternative ways of experiencing art from what's traditionally on offer or finding completely new opportunities where there weren't any before.

We partner with a range of people and organisations to enable access to alternative spaces, places, activities, events, artists and artforms.


To deliver this Theatre Deli focuses on creating positive change in 3 key areas:

Changing spaces: We change the way people engage with and perceive city centre spaces, providing artistic interventions that challenge traditional uses of buildings and resources, and making them inclusive and accessible spaces of creative activity. We want creativity to be interwoven into everybody's everyday lives. 

Changing perceptions: We support and make work that pushes boundaries and removes barriers. Our art, activities and spaces are visceral: for people to participate in, play and interact with, touch and immerse themselves in. Unlike traditional arts spaces, our venues are open spaces for collaboration and the collective, where different groups of people can come together and have the creative freedom to find new ways of working.

Changing careers: We develop artists by providing transformational education and opportunities for those working in the arts that gives them the skills, time and attention to make a step-change in their practice. Above all this we support artists make work and get it on stage.
