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. We deliver ongoing learning opportunities through a high-quality programme of creative writing, visual art, drama, music and dance workshops and performances providing free arts activities for people facing barriers to participation. 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 we 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.
