it's what we are all about!


Everyone has a story to tell. Here at Thunk-It, we believe in working to make sure everyone from all walks of life has the opportunity to be heard. Thunk-It Theatre connects communities and individuals by getting creative and having a good ol’ natter!


Create arts provisions and opportunities for people in Yorkshire; including emerging and aspiring artists, community groups, members of the public and individuals.

Create bold, innovative work that challenges traditional theatrical forms. 



Collaborate with partner organisations to widen the reach of the work to encourage a growth in network; professionally and personally for the participants we work with.

Collaborate within every aspect of our practice, including artists, venues, communities, etc.



Create communities in which we encourage a sense of longevity within these relationships.

Improve wellbeing of participants involved in our projects through building a sense of shared community.
