We are a Birmingham-founded Community Interest Company, established by two First Class creative writing graduates, with an initial ambition to create a local space to share stories.

We now use multi-disciplinary creative activities to empower communities to share compelling stories through workshops, performances, publications and events.

Professionalism, accessibility and authenticity remain at the heart of our organisation.

Our Mission and Values

Our Mission and Values

Tell us a story in black ink or charcoal. Tell us story with your whole body or just your index finger. Tell us a story with puppets made from leaves or tin cans or your dad’s old socks. Tell us a story with juggling balls and wear the gold mask you made or paint your face blue. If you’re a dancer or a photographer or a nurse or a plumber, we’d love to share a cake and make stories with you.

 

We’re mostly playwrights who run creative arts workshops for everyone in Birmingham. As well as writing plays, we write poetry, make masks and puppets, and teach some circus skills as well. We established Windswept Workshops because we want to tap into the creativity that thrums at the heart of Brum’s community to make performing arts a part of everyone’s everyday lives.
