Pan Intercultural Arts is a London based arts company that works with a diverse range of communities across the capital, using the arts to inspire and implement social change.
Those who benefit from Pan’s projects are the marginalised and people in grave danger who perhaps do not have a strong voice in society. The three main strands to their work are a Refugee Arts Programme, an Arts against Violence Programme and finally an International Theatre for Development Programme.
A small sample of the people who have found a voice through drama, music, theatre, dance, writing and film with Pan are refugees, victims of torture, trafficked women, those affected by gun and knife crime and ex-combatants. Unfortunately the list seems to be inexhaustive, but undaunted, the ultimate aim for Pan, is to use the arts as a way of empowering these people, to help them regain their self-esteem and tap in to their creativity as a tool to change their lives … for the better.
These few words here are an incredibly inadequate way to encapsulate the many national and international projects Pan have been instrumental in pioneering, so please take a look at their website to get a fuller understanding. There are many ways you can get involved, should you wish to, either as a volunteer, to participate, as a business or even as an artist. If you think you’d like to get involved, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with them.
