At the heart of our work we engage with marginalised communities and individuals, the education sector and with other institutions whilst working creatively towards transformation, Social change, cultural competency and the celebration of heritage.
National statistics and research show that a growing number of younger individuals especially from BAME communities, to name a few, are failing at school, falling into the Criminal justice system and are turning to alternative lifestyles that not only exclude them from society, but place them into categories at the mercy of social, political and media representation.
We at ROPP strongly believe that these representations often neglect or are ignorant towards the root causes of the deep seated issues that lead to some of the outcomes mentioned above. With creative expression, injustice, hope, achievement and transformation as key stimuli, ROPP desire to counter act and explore the growing trend of low self-concept, dis-empowerment, social exclusion and systematic failure through the artistic services, programs and products we produce, offer and deliver.
“Community & Education”-
Grounded within traditions of ritual, applied and transformative theatre, as a means to explore and awaken the capacity for transformation, ROPP produces and deliver short, mid and long term programs and projects for schools and community organisations.
At the core of our community and education engagement we offer the opportunity for individuals and groups to embark on creative journey’s that will enable them to discover and deeply consider relevant themes and subject matters that are relatable and transferable to their everyday lives.
With powerful, motivational and highly thought-provoking, pieces of contemporary theatre as main reference points and stimulus’ for discussion, ROPP seeks to assist any syllabus, thematic study and subject matter, whilst contributing to the progression of creative learning and the gaining of new perspectives and insights to support individuals and groups to move forward positively.
Please feel free to get in touch with us via email to find out more about our “community & education” services [email protected]
“Theatre and Film Production”-
We at ROPP a long with a growing number of creative artists who work with us believe that Theatre and film should be used as tools to truthfully depict humanity’s diversity, to challenge, inspire, inform, motivate and lastly to entertain. It is our vision to continually build upon and develop our infrastructure of collaborators and creative practitioners that produce professional and high quality Theatre and Film productions that are grounded within the narratives and realities of individuals and communities that are considered marginalised and hard to reach.
To impact the lives of people through Theatre and Film is one of the main driving forces of ROPP. It is our mission when embarking on any production, to stay faithful to the construction of a creative journey that feeds the spirit and celebrates life by exploring strategies for survival, transformation and prosperity.

Ort Gallery Distance: 1.3 miTourist Information 500-504 Moseley Road Birmingham, United Kingdom B12 9AH
Ort Gallery is an artist-led exhibition space in Balsall Heath, Birmingham with the social mission to facilitate dialogue in the community.
Through our work we explore what role an international programme of contemporary art can play in community strengthening. We exhibit ambitious and daring new art work in an old factory space and ensure every exhibition has a strong impact on the local area and it’s residents. We work with socially engaged internationally acclaimed artists (previously Ellie Harrison, Leah Gordon, Juneau Projects, Paul O’Kane and Pil and Galia Kollectiv amongst others) in order to ensure that the art-work is not just shown but lived through our audiences. This is done in a variety of ways such as workshops, poetry events, walks, talks and by the audiences becoming part of the projects. We are an approachable venue, inviting new audiences to the space and celebrating the diversity of Balsall Heath and Birmingham.
Ort Gallery’s curatorial programming is concerned with bringing world-class art to an area lacking cultural activity and engaging the audiences in an organic and meaningful way. Balsall Heath is considered a deprived neighbourhood, and our aim is to raise the profile of the area through cultural events as well as promoting community cohesion and quality of life. Our engagement programme grew organically out of events we hosted for the community.
The artists we work with are dedicated to social change and deal with issues found in Balsall Heath within their practices. We aim for the artists we work with to represent the diversity of people in our immediate area. We believe quality is achieved in many different ways, one of which is to give up and coming artists a platform to exhibit their work and to kick start their career. Ort Gallery pays all the artists we work with a fair wage based on a-n guidelines.
Artists are welcome to submit proposals for future projects. For more information please e-mail: info (a) ortgallery.co.uk with a short introduction.
