YSJ Spark Community Theatre
York St John University’s new city centre community theatre Platform offers, promotes and inspires community arts engagement, participation and performance for all.
The University’s synergy with Spark:York enables the shared desire for creative collaboration to be a dynamic catalyst for social justice and change in the city.
Its aim is to ignite creativity through a process of socially engaged arts practice, that fosters inclusive relationships and initiates community cohesion.
In our first year of the partnership York St John University students, alumni, lecturers, community partners and artists have come together at Platform to facilitate and participate in an array of exciting, contemporary cultural conversation and arts making. The interconnection of diverse communities interacting with arts practice has empowered voices to be heard, prejudice to be challenged and creativity to be celebrated by all.
If you are interested and excited about collaborating with us, wish to start a creative conversation or want to find out more about accessing Platform please get in touch.
