ESC is one of Northern Ireland's most challenging arts education charities. Specialising in drama and film, we deliberately choose to work with people on the margins of our society. Whether prisoner, ex-prisoner, homeless person, person with learning disabilities, cancer or serious mental health issues, we've worked with people to help them tell their stories from their point of view and turn their lives around. As one of our participants recently said "this isn't a cure, but you know what? it's pretty damn near it"
We are most proud of Mickey B, our award winning world first - a modern adaptation of Macbeth made inside the notorious HMP Maghaberry featuring inmates as cast. We're working on the follow up now.
ESC are always open to discussion about new and interesting projects. So if we don't find you, come and find us.
