Open Clasp Theatre Company – Group Award Nominee – 2011

Open Clasp Theatre Company exists to empower women, especially the most disempowered, in the North East of England and uses theatre and drama to do this. All of the company’s projects have raised awareness and promoted positive change in relation to violence against women. Open Clasp works directly with female survivors of domestic and sexual violence, providing safe, accessible drama workshops which bring women together to support each other, value themselves and others and to inform touring productions which raise awareness and challenge attitudes of audiences throughout the North East and further afield.
