Total Ensemble’s Arts Initiative has been launched this year to create opportunities for organisations, individuals, groups and artists to partner with us on any adventure we choose, in the form of any one or more of the following:

Playful and freeing creative workshops in the arts, one-off theatre and dance workshops, short or longer term programmes and projects tailoured to fulfil specific requirements. 

Devising theatre (and rehearsals) for specific commissions, events and public performance. 

Mentoring and faciliatation of independent arts organisation set ups to ‘launch-ready’ throughout the county of Norfolk.

Consultation on any of the above.

Arising from engagement with TE Arts Initiative there will be opportunities to attend casting workshops for Total Ensemble Theatre Company productions.

Activities are suited to both group setting and one to one delivery.

Many aspects of the creative offer can be delivered and accessed online as well as ‘in real life/ in-person’ as requested or needed.

Supported by PBSK Partnership, the creators of the Hostry Festival, the autumn arts festival for Norfolk and Norwich

  • Engage with others, make new connections and meet new people, through positive activity that you will be encouraged to nurture and direct.

  • Nurture a new space and create an atmosphere that provides safe, ‘in-person’, ‘in real life’, experience, where you can be yourself, with others, to enjoy the arts.

  • Contribute to your own community by deveoping the confidence to reach out and help others do the same.

  • Evolve your sense of identity and investigate your sense of purpose by being part of a group that helps people to build universal confidence, self-esteem, communication, empathy, kindness, social connection and skills.

Collaborate. Create. Talk. Be still, think and simply BE TOGETHER

Act. Dance. Sing.

Write. Draw. Sketch. Collage, Paint. Film. Photograph. 

Organise … Activate. 

Enhance your life and those of others.


Be bold! It will be a challenge, you will need to push your own boundaries, take new, brave steps, but it will be life-changing and fun.

No prior experience in the arts or any other group activity needed.

This initiative is for 

  • anyone wanting to explore and share their individuality, talents and skills and most importantly give their time, energy and 100% commitment.

  • those that have the wisdom and humility to understand that they can learn from every other human and be 100% willing to learn from others, whatever their background or experience.
