Collective Encounters at Bootle Library

Theatre group Collective Encounters have taken up a twice-weekly residency at Bootle Library with the aim of creating a new piece of theatre for social change.

The workshop will explore the issues that are important to you, your community and society.

Collective Encounters is a professional arts organisation specialising in theatre for social change through collaborative practice. It uses theatre to engage those on the margins of society, telling untold stories and tackling the local, national and international concerns of our time.

They have been recipients of the Community Resilience Grant managed by Living Well Sefton which was used to work jointly with Stepping Stones on a project to raise confidence and communication skills for people with mental health issues and learning differences.

The project resulted in a performance for an audience of local community groups, councillors and health and support workers.

Collective Encounters will be at Bootle library every Tuesday and Thursday between 10am – 12 noon and 2pm – 4pm.
