Community Partnerships

Our Community Partnerships aim to develop in depth and bespoke work with community organisations who are keen to develop a creative and community collaboration with ENO for a minimum of one year.

Community Partner Organisations integrate this partnership within their aims and objectives, and take part in regular meetings to shape the partnership. Together, we co-design a partnership project that responds to the needs of the group, opening up new possibilities for opera in people’s lives and re-inventing it as a tool for social change.

These Community Partnership Organisations are given the opportunity to welcome pop-up performances and bespoke workshops in their venues – alongside access to free tickets, dress rehearsals and pre-show talks.
