Encounters Participatory Arts

Encounters Arts specialises in designing participatory arts projects & interventions that inspire creativity, dialogue & exchange between people of all ages & cultures.

We offer imaginative spaces and processes for people to explore their relationship with themselves, each other, where they live and the wider natural world.

Running since 2003, Encounters has been using the transformational power of the arts to work creatively with thousands of people in arts, environmental, community, education, reconciliation, rehabilitation, and regeneration contexts.
