Humourisk draws together the talents and skills of local people and artists to create arts-led projects that genuinely connect and empower local voices to build community leadership. We create inspiring initiatives to resonate with a wide reach of people particularly focused on those who are under-represented within local conversations and who may not have previously engaged with arts or community projects.


Humourisk provides positive space to support a natural process of engagement through developing a creative dialogue that breaks down barriers and encourages integration, creating performance and art that redefines perceptions.


Humourisk adopt 5 main principles within our engagement process:


peer support

We create a safe supportive space to empower individual and collective creativity


creative dialogue

We value the equal exchange of ideas to connect communities to their creativity and inspire our artistic practice  



Our work values the power of humour to reach new audiences and highlight our individuality and commonality.


starting where people are at

We recognise the diverse experiences and knowledge of the communities and participants we work with, and the value this brings to our work


creative risks

We encourage creative and artistic risks to find new ways of seeing, to challenge stigma and inequality
