Background and expertise: Collective Encounters began as a practice-as-research initiative to explore if and how theatre had the potential to contribute to social and political change. Having established that it most certainly did, the company has spent the past decade refining its approach and researching other examples of Arts for Change locally, nationally and internationally. The company has published and presented widely on this topic, most recently being commissioned to produce The Social Impact of the Arts in Liverpool 2015-16 for Liverpool City Council.
