Since establishing itself independently in 1991 after three years as the Beaford Centre’s “Common Sense Project”, Wolf + Water Arts Company have brought their creative & therapeutic approaches to a wide variety of groups locally, nationally & internationally. These groups have included:
- people with learning difficulties
- people with mental health issues
- people in conflict situations
- young people at risk
- life threatening illnesses, grief and bereavement
- staff groups working with all the above
Wolf + Water also:
- produce original topical performances for conferences & for tour
- provide a wide range of training courses for those wishing to use drama & arts techniques in special needs situations.
Work has taken the Company throughout the UK, Eire, Scandinavia, the Middle East & the Balkans.
With this huge amount of experience & a wide range of arts group work skills to draw upon, including drama & theatre, music, visual arts & film & video, Wolf + Water are flexible enough to work with the abilities of a wide range of client groups, either purely creatively, or as part of issue based behaviour modification programmes, in an accessible, enjoyable & challenging way.
In all aspects of work, whether expressive or therapeutic, Wolf + Water enjoy working with other peoples creativity - their ability to adapt & change & be inspired. The process of work aims to discover peoples positive abilities & potential for development as opposed to perceiving them through their mental, physical or social disabilities.
