Our Story

At the Story Makers Company we believe that the stories we tell define us and the world around us. We aim to give young people the power and the opportunity to create their stories through drama and creative writing. This approach to education aims to reengage young learners by building their confidence, developing their emotional literacy and creating an imaginative community they can belong to.

The Hub

We work in partnership with some of the most innovative and cutting edge Drama and Theatre Practitioners, artists and authors in the North; offering them the opportunity to work with universities, schools and community settings. The hub facilitates arts practitioner research and celebrates shared creative practice through conferences and the Story Makers Dialogues publication.
