Terra Incognita

We use theatre and visual arts to share the extraordinary stories of ordinary people. We like to bring professional artists and community groups together to collaborate on our projects; our theatre productions are strongly interlinked with community-based workshops and activities, and our community projects are led by professional artists of a high calibre. We make touring theatre productions, walking tours, installations, audio dramas and exhibitions.

Recent theatre productions include My Friend Selma, a solo storytelling show for ages 8-11 telling the remarkable real-life story of a girl who fled war in Bosnia and found safety in the UK; and Invisible Army for ages 11-16, created in collaboration with a group of young carers in Glasgow, telling the story of a boy falling further and further into his imagination as a means of coping with a challenging reality. 

We run two regular groups: 
Glasgow As I See It - a group for visually impaired older people. The group meets fortnightly to explore local history, heritage, visual art and storytelling. 
Young Carers Group - for young people aged 11-16 with caring responsibilities who meet regularly to explore a range of arts practices. 

We also run shorter-term projects that engage a wide range of people from the local community. 

We work in collaboration with other community organisations in Glasgow and across Scotland to engage participants and audiences. We reach a wide range of community groups with our work including women's groups, refugees and asylum seekers, older people, and young people.
