Welcome to Arc
Co-founded in 1984 by Clifford Oliver and Carole Pluckrose, Arc specialises in creating and performing theatre that challenges assumptions and causes real change in the way that people relate to one another at work, at school and in the community. As a pioneering organisation we were instrumental in bringing the issue of racism in football to the forefront of public awareness.
The organisations that we work with are those that seek to move forward and achieve a lasting difference, whether it be in the field of diversity, inclusion, education, health, criminal justice or community cohesion.
We are expert in a range of learning strategies including theatre, storytelling, drama workshops and interactive Forum Theatre. The success of our work is underpinned by first-class facilitation and meticulous research and preparation. Our facilitators, performers, storytellers and workshop leaders are trained to the highest standards and bring passion, energy and commitment to this work.
