THE ENSEMBLE PROJECTS

P1122097.jpeg

ENSEMBLE IS AT THE HEART OF PRIME CUTS COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT WORK. WE HAVE DELIVERED THE ENSEMBLE PROJECTS ACROSS NORTHERN IRELAND SINCE 2014, WORKING WITH A RANGE OF COMMUNITY AND VOLUNTARY ORGANISATIONS, EXPLORING THEIR VIEWS AND OPINIONS OF THEIR OWN COMMUNITIES, AND NORTHERN IRELAND AS A WHOLE.

ORIGINALLY DESIGNED TO ALLOW US TO WORK IN A NEW WAY AND CREATE MEANINGFUL RELATIONSHIPS WITH COMMUNITIES, PLACING PARTICIPANT OWNERSHIP AND INCLUSIVITY FRONT AND CENTRE, ENSEMBLE HAS ENABLED US TO ARTISTICALLY ENGAGE WITH A WIDE RANGE OF GROUPS, CREATING NEW CONNECTIONS AND EXPLORING THE ISSUES, THEY DEFINED AS MOST IMPACTFUL IN THEIR LIVES.

TO DATE WE HAVE WORKED WITH OVER 50 GROUPS AND OVER 1000 PEOPLE INCLUDING CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE, OLDER PEOPLE, PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES, MEMBERS OF THE BME COMMUNITIES OF NORTHERN IRELAND. FROM AN INITIAL SERIES OF FOUR WORKSHOPS, PER GROUP, LARGER LEGACY PROJECTS HAVE GROWN INCLUDING 2 LARGE SCALE LIVE PERFORMANCES, A YOUNGER CHILDREN DIVERSITY PROJECT, 2 SHORT FILMS AND A TWO YEAR MULTI-DISCIPLINARY ARTS PROJECT EXPLORING DEMENTIA. PARTICIPATION IN ENSEMBLE IS FREE AND IS OPEN ON A YEAR-ROUND ROLLING BASIS.
