We are a National Portfolio Organisation of Arts Council England, however, demand for our work far exceeds our funding and our activity and ambition remain high through-out each year. Our yearly programme of participation and engagement work, under our Taught by an Idiot banner, is inextricably linked to our productions and is only made possible through additional funding.
Taught facilitates engagement for everyone, regardless of age or background. Our aim through this work, and indeed through our shows, is simple; to release peoples’ creativity, curiosity and their desire to play. If you are a trust or foundation or a public sector funder and would like to find out more about how you can support our shows and Taught by an Idiot work, please contact Jenni Grainger, Executive Producer or call 0207 407 4123.
We are grateful for the generosity of trusts and foundations who have supported us in the past and continue to work alongside us in order to help expand Told by an Idiot’s reach. See current / past supporters here.
Our productions achieve a huge amount of success and critical acclaim, with thousands of audiences seeing our shows each year. As a touring company our work can stretch across the length and breadth of the country as well as internationally, from Plymouth to Edinburgh, New York to Barcelona. We are adept at working with different companies on different levels.
Most recently we worked with British Airways who sponsored the transfer of our hit production, My Perfect Mind, to 59E59 Theaters in New York. For more information and about possible ways to invest in the company in this way please contact Jenni Grainger, Executive Producer or call 0207 407 4123.
