Working together to enable creative collaboration that makes a difference
Cutting Edge Theatre was formed in 1995 by Suzanne Lofthus with the aim of making a difference in people’s lives through transformational theatre. At the heart of our work is a desire to make a positive change in society, to leave a creative legacy and to enable those we connect with to access, create and participate in the arts and creative industries.
Brought together by our common passion for the arts and our trust in their power to effect positive change, Cutting Edge Theatre believes that everyone has value and creative potential that needs mentoring, encouragement and collaboration.
For over 25 years Cutting Edge Theatre has been involved in a range of projects and theatre productions in various communities across Scotland and beyond, including Malawi, Zimbabwe, USA, Italy and Brazil, enabling mainly people who are marginalised in various ways to access, create and participate in the arts and creative industries.
As a creative organisation which focuses on working with and for those who share one or more protected characteristics defined by the Equality Act 2010, we are governed by our revised cohesive strategy. Our strategy includes a step by step, joined-up approach for growing the capacity and enabling the progress within the arts and creative industries for all of those we work with. We love seeing smiles of happiness, hearing communal laughter and watching those we have supported go on to achieve so much more!
Cutting Edge Theatre was short-listed as one of the 2010 Guardian newspaper’s Charity of the Year.[/wrapper_small]
