Jumblies Theatre makes art in everyday and extraordinary places with, for and about the people and stories found there. Our art entwines with and grows out of life’s details and rituals, and our community is open-ended and rooted in people doing something together. We dismantle boundaries and connect disparate elements. We create fleeting utopias and lasting ripples. We say, Everyone is welcome!, and grapple with the implications – aesthetic and social – of meaning it.
Over the past twelve years, Jumblies has advanced community arts practice through three intertwining strands of activity: Jumblies Projects –creating new art works in collaboration with people and places through multi-year residencies; the Jumblies Studio –dedicated to learning and mentorship to build new community arts capacity; and Jumblies Offshoots –maintaining relationships with communities, projects, artists and arts leaders.
Our 2012-2013 Annual Report chronicles, by season,
our adventures in all of these realms.
