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: 

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: 

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.

 

Community: 

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.
