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-making, creative 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.
