Community Participation

We run community participation events before, during and after our productions, building relationships between audiences and creatives to form a community around our work.

The Voice Behind Our Town

The Voice Behind Our Town is a a series of podcasts in which residents of Ferguslie Park in Paisley, talk about their community and the truth behind the headlines often associated with the area. It has been made by In Motion as part of our Other Side of the River project and is supported by Future Paisley, Renfrewshire Leisure, and Renfrewshire Council.

Utterly brilliant two days learning with Biff, and so much fun, laughter and song. Hope we get more of this. Thank you.

Theatre for Everyone

We believe theatre should be for everyone, that's why we run lots of fun events open to anyone.


For example we:


  • Take groups of people who've never experienced live theatre on trips to local productions.

  • Facilitate song writing workshops with participants who've never played an instrument.

  • Run fun swing-dance classes in community spaces for people of all abilities aged 16+.

  • Hold podcasting sessions were even the most techno-phobic have an opportunity to participate.

  • Go into prison settings to deliver new writing and other creative workshops.

  • Host quiz nights, workshops, new author readings, previews and full productions, not only in traditional theatres, but also in non-traditional theatre spaces.

  • Host Friday Socials where communities can perform their talents along with our professional team.

  • Directly involve communities in the research, writing, development and performance of new theatre.
