A Moment’s Peace Theatre Company has been active since 2004. Co-founded by Catrin Evans and Cashel Gormley the company was an expression of our desire to make performance work that spoke to our political and social concerns.

 

We would be bold, we would challenge and our work would entertain.

Over the last fifteen years we have evolved into a multi-artform participatory performance company with a reputation for creating and delivering high quality, relevant and accessible work across Scotland and beyond. Our projects are a way for artists, participants and audiences to centre narratives and experiences that are too often marginalised within wider society. 

 

With new work, participation and collaboration at the heart of our vision, we create productions, interactive arts events and performance projects that are rooted in the relationship between arts practice and social justice. We work with diverse geographical, cultural, social and economic communities to discover stories and experiences that compliment, contradict and provoke debate. We consistently collaborate across artforms and styles; embracing theatre, dance and film, as well as the visual and digital arts.

 

The common thread running through all our work is that we encourage everyone who works with us to re-imagine the world; to see it brimming with the possibility of positive change and to recognise their capacity to be a part of enacting it.

 

As a small outfit our success is contingent upon rich collaborations with our ever-expanding family of brilliant freelance practitioners. We work hard to provide an environment of trust that combines their expertise with our company ethos, and we are committed to platforming the work of artists who are representative of an increasingly multi-lingual and multi-cultural Scotland.

 

In addition, we have built and continue to nurture strong partnerships with a broad range of organisations within the arts, voluntary and educational sector.

 

Together we continue to be bold, to challenge and to entertain.

A Note on Board Recruitment 

A Moment's Peace is always open to new board members, and we recently adopted a process whereby 

interested board members can join us for a trial period, so they and we can test out the relationship. We also hope that this will attract folk who might not ordinarily see themselves as comfortable in a board environment because AMP is aware that board membership is historically a site of exclusion for many people. We do not want to participate in this exclusion, and so we recognise that skills are developed in all sorts of ways and that a multiplicity of perspectives is the only way to ensure we remain rigorous about our work. We want to build a board that is reflective of our multi-faceted city, so that we can genuinely make an impact on its cultural landscape. If you think you could support us in doing this - even if you have no previous board experience - please do get in touch: BoardOfTrustees@amomentspeace.co.uk
