Alchemy Arts is a media and arts organisation that specialises in using drama and other art forms to create space for seldom heard voices.
We specialise in delivering services within local communities helping to build skills, friendships and an environment for individuals to thrive. Our sessions are creative, interactive and are influenced by the teachings of Augusto Boal and Paulo Freire, focussing on liberation, empowerment and anti-oppressive practice. We work creatively to develop positive communication skills and explore issues around self-respect. Sessions actively promote self-awareness, self-confidence and participation.
Alchemy Arts also specialises in working with young Muslims, exploring identity, culture, politics of difference within communities and promoting community cohesion. In addition to Drama, Alchemy Arts also offers Dance, Media and Music sessions to engage participants enabling them to make positive transformational change. Alchemy Arts recognises that not all groups are the same. We work flexibly and ensure that sessions are tailored to meet the needs of the groups involved.
