who-we-are

Diverse Arts is a creative media and arts production hub based in North Wales.

As well as offering state of the art commercial film and sound recording studios, our national links with theatre, drama and other creative groups means that we can support schools and colleges and inspire your learners both with provocative productions, and access to a professional learning environment in which to develop skills and competences in front of and behind the camera.

Within our core team we have film and drama production, animation, interactive game, photo shoot, video and record production expertise.

And that is just our core team! Our partners reflect expertise right across the creative industries internationally. Our creative reach can be seen from our recently completed production of the feature film Vinyl, photoshoots with a Formula One Team and the filming and recording of high profile musicians.

At present, we are probably best known in education for two elements:

Theatre in Education

Firstly our Theatre in Education work. We have a long tradition of working in schools and colleges to provide cutting-edge, provocative, issues based dramas designed to engage young people in critical issues.

Some of our productions focus on social issues such as teenage pregnancy, bullying, alcohol and drug misuse, youth unemployment, careers advice etc.

However, there is a problem with Theatre in Education productions… the problem is that they are an event, rather than part of a development process.

Ours, based on our feedback from clients are exciting, are memorable and thought provoking events, but they are also much more. We aim to make them part of a process of capacity building and reflective learning for both your students and staff.

This is why we will engage with you before the production to ensure that what appears to be a generic programme will be presented to you as a bespoke experience which aligns with your organisational objectives and tailors the work to your specific needs.

We will place ourselves as a trusted partner of choice for the development of your curriculum, the professional development of your staff and the learning engagement of your students.

Job Ready Accredited Competences Certification

Secondly, we have established a reputation for providing accredited courses designed to allow students to show enterprise and work ready competences which are based in real skills required in the creative industries.

Certainly students find the kit and environment engaging to work with in the creative industries. But the ability to work in dedicated teams which are dependent on each other, to communicate effectively and precisely and to apply creativity and the ability to problem solve to time critical projects are key skills that will be demanded in the economy of the 21st century.

So committed are we to embrace what we consider to be a New Renaissance, fostered by what we know from advancing research in metacognition, and our understanding of the learning process, linked to the capacity of new learning technologies to personalise the learning process, that we will shortly be announcing some exciting developments which will benefit your organisation profoundly.

Bizarrely, as the Creative Arts contributes an increasing element to our national economy and symbolises the creativity of our nation, so the arts in schools seem to be under pressure and marginalised. Our mission is to see the Creative Arts represented to its full and exciting potential in learning!

Becoming a learning partner of Diverse Arts gives you access to all this expertise and excellence, in person and online, and to international industry standards.
