Our Space is a creative programme that works with adults with multiple and complex needs. Members come from all walks of life and may have faced challenges involving homelessness, mental health issues, re-offending, substance misuse, or they may feel isolated for other reasons.
Our Space offers three levels of engagement: Community hub drama workshops held in partnership with local services and organisations; weekly workshops in drama held at our Production and Learning centre at TR2; and Project X—bespoke training sessions for longer standing members to gain further skills that are transferable to everyday life.
Our Space is funded by the National Lottery Community Fund. Our Space is still running during this time, to find out how you can join us, please send us an email or call 07732499859.
In March 2020 as the world ground to a halt, the Our Space programme transitioned, like so many, to an online existence, as they sought to stay connected and creative in lockdown.
They experimented with many kinds of games and exercises along the way, but what began to burn most brightly in the sessions was the weekly free-writing where they witnessed each other’s highs and lows and throughout the year, they wrote it all down.
Lost and Found is a small selection of what turned up on the page – raw and, for the most part, unedited. Proud of what was collectively achieved, Lost and Found is a fitting tribute to the journey through 2020 with an extraordinary group of people.
Sara Rhodes, Engagement Manager at Theatre Royal Plymouth said: “In an extraordinary year, where so many felt isolated and disconnected, Our Space provided a digital space for members to meet, share their highs and lows of lockdown and have a creative outlet, which mainly came in the form of free-writing. Lost and Found is a beautiful tribute to the incredible talent and creativity of this amazing group of people.”
Our Voice is a creative programme based in HMP Exeter that works with prisoners to address issues surrounding mental health and well-being, integration within the prison, resilience and hope.

They should have this in every prison (…) I struggle with my emotions and this helps my head.
