Play and Provocation

We wish to cultivate artistic practice and engagement that celebrate the interdependency with each other and the environment. We create ambitious projects to explore our present world and future where individuals, communities and the environment work in harmonious collaboration through creative practice.  

In 2020, we were awarded the Creative Workplace Award by Arts & Business NI for our collaboration with Citi group Mental Health and Well-Being programme. This year we are delighted to be working in collaboration with Portview, MCS and the Harkin Summit on the themes of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion.

We deliver: 

  • Creative workshops for Mental Health and Well-Being: Tinderbox’s expertise in Play has received national recognition, with artists from the UK and Europe engaging in our programmes. The workshop will focus on exploring and discovering the creative space that exists through the art of Play. The Creative space is a liberating pause where the overly-thinking mind is reduced and the elements of game, imagination and the physical body come into play. The creative space is invigorating, dynamic and a force for developing confidence and resilience in dealing with our Mental Health. It is also a valuable tool for the discovery of new ideas and concepts for the workplace. Workshops are facilitated by Artistic Director, Patrick J O’Reilly. 
  • Creative Motion Projects: Tinderbox champion artistic process as a tool for  Transformation. With artistic practice, we are invited to engage with dramatic technique to explore the issues and challenges we are current facing on a personal/national level with the ultimate aim to create positive change in our environment. We are delighted to offer a creative package where Tinderbox will spend a half/full day at your location exploring challenging and important themes.
