Fortune provides a safe and enjoyable space for 17-23 yr olds from across the world, many who arrived recently from very difficult situations, to (re)discover their creative impulses, gain their self-confidence and their freedom of ideas and communicate them to a wider audience.  

As they grow they reach a stage where they can confidently create and deliver performances to the general public and mentor new members who join the group.

Projects have led to performances in many unusual places, including ‘Asylum Road’, a portrayal of the history of asylum played within the confines of a shipping container, the production of 'The Colour of Love' in the crypt of a church and the walk-through food-preparing and storytelling event 'Taste of Memory' (check its blog here 

They have also created a much-screened series of short films ‘Journey to Make’ which grew from a performance in Kings Cross Station.

The Fortune group is co-directed by Pan artists John Martin and Melanie Anouf, with support from other artists, volunteers and placements.
