Made By Mortals deliver bespoke satellite projects in collaboration with a range of partners from health, social care and education organisations. These projects are co-produced with multiple organisations working together to create work that has a bigger and longer lasting impact.
Our satellite projects involve participants who have a variety of health and/or social difficulties, including carers, young people with emotional and behavioural difficulties and or SEN, adults with experience of mental health issues and adults with learning difficulties.
Participants create original music theatre alongside professional theatre makers, composers and musicians to produce shows and workshops that address health and social challenges, celebrate the lived experience of those involved and challenge preconceptions of what is possible from a music theatre performance that has participation at its heart.
“Participants have developed skills and found pathways into the creative sector.”

“It was possibly the best thing we have staged at Safety Central, in no small part to the artists’ understanding of the topics we cover and their enthusiasm and talent in bringing out the best in people.”
Mark Shone, Safety Central
“It’s given me confidence and social skills that I didn’t have before.”
“I never thought I could write my own songs, and then perform them to other people!”
“The Re-Shuffle project has had a profound impact on our young people. As a result of this project and the social skills they develop, they find it less challenging to collaborate with others and work as a team.”
