Profile

We are a theatre company working across the UK and internationally to make interesting, political and provocative work that brings about social change.

Our vision is a world where everyone has a voice to tell their story. We focus on those who are currently under-represented or misrepresented in society. Our medium is theatre because we believe that it is one of the most enduringly powerful ways to tell stories.

We see a time when everyone can access theatre, and a world where diversity is the norm, where discrimination is non-existent and where all voices can be heard. As such, we are part of a larger humanitarian cause fighting for the rights and civil liberties of all people regardless of background, characteristics or personal circumstance.

Our mission is to tell stories that are or would otherwise go untold or unheard. We do this through theatre. We challenge the arts sector in Wales and beyond to embrace diversity and we export our ideas and work across the UK and the rest of the world. We aim to lead the way in presenting theatre that brings about positive change at a local, national and international level.

Fio works within three stands People, Projects and Productions. Through these three strands and the following values enables the organisation to achieve its charitable objects.

WE ARE FEARLESS:
We create bold politically charged theatre that provokes conversations within our communities. Tearing down stereotypes, challenging injustice and amplifying unheard voices. Our productions challenge the dominant narratives in our society.

WE ARE CHANGE:
We empower individuals with training and development opportunities, responding to the needs of those facing barriers. Training, developing and diversifying the workforce of Wales and beyond. Giving people the tools and the platform to speak out and tell their own stories.

WE ARE FUTURE:
We are identifying and developing a new generation of politically charged creatives. Arming them with the tools to change institutions and ideologies. Fio is about developing a more diverse cultural landscape, proving that theatre and the arts is for everyone.
