Soul City Arts (SCA) is committed to developing creative and innovative programmes of work that deliver against our vision of ‘connecting communities and transforming society through creativity’. We create high quality events and programmes that bring people together to explore commonalities and shared narratives across all faiths and none.
Our work is characterised by deep visual spectacle and an immersive environment that engages all the senses. By celebrating our shared humanity we seek to reverse the isolation felt by some communities and thus build pride, civic engagement and confidence.
SCA focus on issues that are pertinent to all minority communities. We present in a way that straddles the interests of multiple groups in society, though retain a sensitivity to the specific of needs of individual communities, designing our events and programmes accordingly. Islamophobia, segregation, poverty, racism, sexism, violence, and classism are, for example, themes that run throughout much of SCA’s work – themes which hold special meaning for some groups, though relevance for all.
SCA’s trademark involves bringing diverse communities together and using the arts to create platforms for all to speak. We capture the stories and themes unique to individuals, though which bind us all together, and we engage our public as co-producers and co-authors in this work: we believe that collaboration and representation are key to building stronger, more connected communities.
