Situations Trust

Situations opens up the opportunity for artists to make extraordinary ideas happen in unusual and unexpected places, inspiring audiences and participants to explore new horizons and creating the potential for positive change to happen.

Our work begins with the site, situation, people, circumstance, history, or untold story of a place, taking us to many different cities, towns and villages across the UK, in particular in South West of England, and occasionally overseas.

Founded 2012
