Creative Engagement

Threshold believes that Creative Engagement can genuinely change people’s lives and be a force for social change. 

 We work with under-represented voices and diverse communities across the UK and beyond, reaching key groups in neighbourhoods who do not typically engage with cultural or creative activity. 

We deliver a wide range of creative activities and workshops spanning film-makingcreative writing, digital photography and music production.  Through our international project Cámara Chica we have set up 10 film making hubs throughout Cuba and Venezuela.  Our Collider conversations series re-invents a panel discussion   

Our Creative Engagement Manager is currently developing long-term projects in collaboration with communities in Lincoln to create a lasting social impact and legacy. Projects will respond to the social issues faced by communities and the unique characteristics of the area.    The first engagement project This Is Us – explores the history of industry and migration through the lives of the community of Sincil Bank.   

Creative Engagement at Threshold aims: 

  • To connect with, build trust and develop ongoing working relationships with communities ensuring there is a lasting impact and positive change in these areas.
  • To treat people as human beings who have thoughts, feelings and opinions and not just someone who ticks a box.
  • To champion engagement projects and activities that address relevant social issues such as race, class and austerity.
  • To empower participants to become co-authors, take the lead in participatory projects.
