Timeline

"Founded on passion, creativity and a drive to make change."

Our History

Odd Arts is continuously evolving – ensuring our staff and participants remain engaged, empowered and inspired.

2004

Odd Theatre Co. is Founded

Here we began our research and practice working with theatre practitioner and politician Augusto Boal in the prisons and favelas of Brazil. We developed our own theatre projects in the prisons in Peru before bringing our work back to the UK.

2005

We Developed Our Programmes

We developed a range of innovative programmes that tackle current and challenging social issues. We forged long term partnerships with the Police, prisons, schools and youth centres. We became an Arts Award centre of excellence.

2013

Odd Arts Emerged

To reflect the diversity of our work and celebrate our achievements we rebranded as Odd Arts and continued our high quality creative programmes.

2017

We Got Published

Odd Arts took part in a US Embassy Exchange to Boston on Countering Violent Extremism and we became specialists in delivery around radicalisation. In 2018 two academic papers were published on Odd Arts and our Director joined the National Arts Alliance steering group.

“I was struck by how vital a service Odd Arts provide. In deprived areas of social unrest their unique artistic approach is a vital part of our cultural landscape”
