Support Us

It is not easy to make change happen. Changing belief systems takes time and we cannot do it alone. But if we don’t move forward with this change, injustice, inequality and exclusion will always be with us. And we will all be poorer for that. You can help us to make work that is with, for and about our communities. You can help us to represent the diverse makeup of our society, onstage and off it and in the audience. If you like us believe that we can transform understanding and our relationships to create a fairer, richer world, join us by:

To become part of our movement, you can:

  • Donating to Extraordinary Bodies (charitable giving to Extraordinary Bodies is administered by Diverse City Ltd Charity number 1176855).
  • Coming to our shows, telling your friends and family about us, following us on social media and signing up to our newsletter in order to stay up to date with our opportunities and tour dates. The more people who know about us, the more impact we can have.
  • Getting involved with our shows as a volunteer or as a community performer.
