A warm hug and a wake up call.


When people come together, they can do amazing things. We’re Art with Heart, and we’re shaping change through people led-creative projects. We design performances that galvanize action, take portraits that alter perspectives, broadcast conversations around equality, design creative projects that generate community pride – and share knowledge in training workshops!

We create work that centres around things that matter to the communities we work with, exploring subjects like mental health, gender equality, sexuality, ageing and familial relationships. And it’s all held together by the things that matter to us – equality, accessibility and representation.

Our theatre work includes award-winning one-woman show Declaration, exploring mental health and ADHD. Stan, a bilingual play for children, written in English and BSL, exploring communication, friendship and the family unit, and Secret Diaries, a queer coming of age story based on the hilarious and unflinchingly honest real-life diaries of a lesbian teenager growing up in the 80s and 90s.

Exhibitions include 100 Deeds, an interactive exhibit addressing gender equality in the 21st century and Old Stock, New Stock, a photographic exhibition combatting stereotypical portrayals of older people in stock photography. Other projects include Box Tickers, a four-part podcast series marking the 10th anniversary of the Equalities Act and Kiss my Heart, an interactive story sharing experience for two, taking place in a pink tent.
