Immediate Theatre

Supporting the most vulnerable through creative programmes


A Hackney-based arts charity, using theatre and the arts to help people engage with issues and concerns and to imagine the process of change. Our programmes aim to: - provide inspiring participatory theatre programmes enabling people to reach their potential and prevent exclusion and social isolation - create performances which explore social issues, engage people in the process of change and influence decision making - improve health and wellbeing and increase life skills and employability through engagement in the arts. We have three main strands to our work: Work with Young People, Work with Over 55s and Employability Work. We are proud to have Hackney-born actor Idris Elba represent our organisation as our Patron, reflecting his belief in using the arts to bring people from different backgrounds and communities together.
