About Making Room
Making Room Community Arts is a radically inclusive, inter-disciplinary arts company dedicated to community cultural development, moving towards a culture of mutual support and bringing art into everyday life.
We make celebrations and ceremonies, large and small with those living in the margins in order to put them in the centre of the story.
