Welcome to Community Arts International

My name is Alan Lyddiard and I believe that the arts make a difference in society.  I am a theatre practitioner and I try to write honestly about the things I believe in.

I post updates, news about projects, jobs and upcoming events on the Facebook Page

On this website I write about things that interest me as well as stuff about my work and my motivation to do it.

Searching for a City of Sanctuary

Last June we created a  new community theatre piece “Searching for a City of Sanctuary” with partners from across the North East of England including The Cyrenians, (Now Changing Lives)  Freedom From Torture, St. John the Baptist Church, Better Days, Crossings Music Unite, West End Refugee Services, Lawnmowers Independent Theatre Company and Northumbria University.

From March 2014 we will be working on the next stage of “Searching for a City of Sanctuary”

We are committed to the development of community arts as a vehicle for change – community cohesion -regeneration – training – employment opportunities  – and most of all – having fun – meeting new people and discussing ways to create beautiful things together.
