Exciting Update

Posted on by Unanima


We are delighted to announce that we have been successful in our Grants for the Arts application. HOORAH! We will receive funding from The Arts Council of England to explore and develop Unanima Theatre’s place within the arts sector.


We are also excited to share with you our new home. Unanima Theatre will now be Artists in Residence at The Old Library Arts Venue and Media Centre in Mansfield, the home of the formidable County Youth Arts who have been instrumental in Unanima’s inception and continuing success.

A new partnership with Vision West Nottinghamshire College and Create Theatre is also an exciting development and we hope to work with VWNC’s Performing Arts Graduates and current students as Early Career Artists.


Alongside organisational development, Unanima Theatre will invite new participants to research, develop, devise and present a brand new piece of theatre to be performed at various venues in Nottinghamshire and beyond.


Unanima is an inclusive community theatre company with an ethos for integration. If you are a young person or adult aged 16+, with or without a learning disability, and you are interested in becoming part of our team, please get in touch.

Email: office.unanima@gmail.com or via Twitter @unanimatheatre


We will be launching a crowd fund very soon. If you would like to donate a pound or two, you would be making an amazing contribution to an innovative, inclusive theatre company.

If you are rich, you are welcome to donate as much as you like.
