Touching lives through creativity....


Aspire Trust is committed to producing arts practice which has a social purpose, uses high quality participatory techniques and is presented in a wide range of public spaces. We aim to use creative and collaborative arts practice to identify the things that matter to people, to engage them in connecting them to their communities and the wider world and to tell tales that need to be told.


What we can do for you…

Do you have an arts production you have been dreaming about for years? Do you want to engage in a new way of thinking about audiences, participation, community, income generation and sustainability?

We have been producing large scale arts productions and conferences for over ten years. We bring disparate audiences and participants together, sometimes over vast distances, to share experiences, wonder at and question the world they live in: and above all, to realise that they are not alone on this wonderful planet of ours.

Whether you have a fully developed idea which needs implementing , or a vague idea of what could be a world changing event – we are here to help.

Why not just get in touch and see how we can help you?


What we can do for you…

Do you have a particular research challenge which requires a unique and innovative methodological approach? Which speaks with people in ways that traditional research does not? Which knows how to apply both quantitative and qualitative approaches with integrity, intelligence and inspiration? Which is robust, rigorous and grounded in state of the art theoretical challenges and practical realities?

We have a track record of developing nationally and internationally recognised research programmes in the fields of arts, culture and creativity with higher education partners from across the world. If you’re looking for an inspirational approach to engaging, critical and transformational research, then we are here to help.

What we can do for you…

With learning at the heart of our all our work – whether with 3 year olds or 93 year olds - we offer a unique, arts and creative based to learning and teaching which is truly person centred. We support and extend participants' interests, supporting yet challenging them to think and act beyond their comfort zones; offering non-judgmental attitudes to their lifestyles but being clear about the importance of democracy, tolerance, cultural diversity in our working relationships and their wider social circles.

As well as offering innovative approaches to teaching and learning, we can also skill up your staff to ensure that the learning remains in your organisation, once we have left the building!

If you’re looking for an inspirational, sustainable and challenging approach to learning and teaching, then we are here to help.
