What we do
About our work
Pan is an intercultural arts organisation dedicated to the exploration of cultural diversity through the arts and how such work can inspire and implement social change. This is achieved through workshops and performances with young people who are marginalised and at risk of social exclusion. Pan helps its participants find a voice through drama, dance, music, writing and film. We work with people from all cultures and religions to encourage a world where we respect and understand each others' lives, discovering the possibilities of our rich diversity.

We have developed a range of programmes to support the development, and unlock the potential, of those in need including a Refugee Arts Programme, an Arts Against Violence Programme and an International Theatre for Development Programme.
We have implemented an integration initiative where these strands of work move more closely together, sharing skills, artists, inspirations and participants. This move towards integration gave us the theme word Synergy.
Our Expansion project takes our successful models of work to more cities across the UK where it is sorely needed. We instigate projects with partner organisations and train local facilitators to take over the work from us and embed it in their provision.
