About


conFAB was founded in January 2004. Since then, we have grown organically, but significantly, each year developing new and exciting work that straddles many different genres and art forms. Central to the organisation is a very real and deep rooted commitment to community and education-based work which strives for artistic excellence as well as respecting the crucial development process. We create artistically bold productions where professional practitioners and community actors/ performers work alongside each other. Our work is underpinned by our values:

Accessibility: we are committed to providing access to the arts for everyone as audiences, as participants and as artists.

Inclusivity: we recognise, encourage and support the development of the creative potential and capacity in everyone

Equality: we recognise the value and interconnectivity of all contributors to the creative process; artists, community participants, partners, crew and audiences. We seek ways in which can facilitate these multiple voices and facilitate opportunities for these voices to be heard.

Innovation: our policy is to be flexible and responsive to need, exploring new ideas and new ways of doing things to answer that need.
