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. Evidencing the gap in cultural provision, the organisation has been in demand since its inception, responding to invitations from a wide range of partners including formal and informal education providers, local councils, museums, libraries and community and other professional arts organisations.

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.

Artistic Director: Rachel Jury, Writer/Director/Producer
