    Organisation Profile:

    Made by Mortals is a not-for-profit social enterprise that delivers multimedia performance projects through creative collaborations with professional and participatory artist from a range of social and cultural backgrounds. We aim to challenge preconceptions of what is possible from a performance that has participated at its heart. Our projects are fundamentally about using creativity to bring about positive change - on a personal, social, artistic and community basis. We have three strands of work:

    1. Hearts and Minds - workshops with over 55's to create music and drama performances aimed at intergenerational audiences, as well as to promote using creativity as a vehicle to improve health and wellbeing.
    2. This Way Up - workshops with professional artists and adults with mental health issues and/or learning difficulties to create multimedia performances that inspire social action and positive community change.
    3. Reshuffle - provide pathways into creative industries for young people in challenging circumstances
