Shaping change together through creative projects

We are Art with Heart

We’re Art with Heart, an award-winning Salford based arts company that designs and delivers performances, workshops and people-led creative projects for community groups, arts organisations and schools across the UK.

We believe that when people come together through theatre and art, they have the power to make change – and that it’s our responsibility to create accessible, representative spaces where they can give it a try.

That change can take place where it’s needed: in theatres, classrooms, community centres, libraries, on trams – and even in caravans – using whatever artform fits best: plays, podcasts, workshops, films and exhibitions. We’re changemakers and celebrators, working with people on their terms to collaborate, create and make tangible social action, together.
