Theatr Ffynnon is a unique community arts theatre company working primarily with adults and young people with learning disabilities, and is recognised as a model of best practice in supporting the development of a disability arts culture in Wales and beyond.
We exist to enrich the lives of people with learning disabilities, physical disabilities and mental health issues, by providing development opportunities through training and participation in the visual and performing arts. Through such diverse opportunities, we endeavour to change perceptions within the communities we work, by promoting a greater understanding and engagement.
Creating a challenging, expressive but safe environment is essential to our work. We believe that by building some of our work around topical or divisive issues, we can help to confront negative attitudes and defy expectations of what can be achieved by individuals with learning disabilities, physical disabilities and mental health issues.
The diversity of work we undertake is consistently devised and led by the membership (which currently stands at 100) and the communities we work within, to establish themes or issues pertinent to the individual & communities we represent.
