Pan is an intercultural arts organisation dedicated to the exploration of cultural diversity through the arts and how such work can inspire and implement social change. This is achieved through workshops with young people who are marginalised and at risk of social exclusion, performances, festivals, seminars and conferences. Pan helps its participants find a voice through drama, dance, music, writing and film. We work with people from all cultures and religions to encourage a world where we respect and understand each other’s lives, discovering the possibilities of our rich diversity.
We have developed a range of programmes to support the development, and unlock the potential, of those in need, including a Refugee Arts Programme, an Arts Against Violence Programme and an International Theatre for Development Programme. More recently we have implemented an integration initiative where these strong, but previously separate, strands of work move more closely together, sharing skills, artists, inspirations and participants. This move towards integration gave us the theme word Synergy which is reflected throughout our work.
