“Real sense of wonder... such a joy… pure play and fun” -Parent

Different Planet Arts is an artist-led organisation. We produce and deliver transformative theatre and play experiences with high production values at their core which are satisfying, enjoyable and therapeutic. We create events; experiences and environments in which we facilitate participants to co-create and play – connecting their inner and outer worlds. The spaces become vehicles for personal transformation, connection and community. We work with hard to reach individuals and communities, devising different events and happenings tailored to the needs of specific groups of participants. We encourage reverse inclusion in the projects, allowing participants to invite their families and friends. We work in Theaters, Arts Centers, schools, hospitals and Community settings.

"The first place that we can all go together and play and its so much fun!" - Sibling


Different Planet Arts envision a world where arts experiences and events are accessible to everyone and celebrated as part of the everyday cultural landscape.

We believe that access and participation in cultural and arts experiences are fundamental to the human experience and to the health and empowerment of individuals and communities. We enable those who are often excluded to participate in creative activities within the wider community.

Transformation  The transformative and therapeutic value of theatre and the arts in their ability to affect and create positive change in peoples’ lives. Our work is thought-provoking and fun.
