Two new storytelling commissions for Darwen and Burnley

Posted on July 21, 2017

We have two great opportunities for someone to develop a new piece of ‘storytelling’ work. One is targeted at young adults with learning difficulties and the other focusing on local stories and folklore. Both £3,000 commissions are to produce  scratch performances with the potential to develop them, with support in raising additional funding if suitable. The deadline for both commissions is August 14th. A full brief for the Darwen commission can be found Here and a full brief for the Burnley commission can be found 


Culturapedia exists to give ideas legs. Our vision is to be a leading light in the cultural landscape. Our mission is to facilitate human evolution through creative encounters.

That may sound bold. But why be half hearted? We know through experience, that engagement with creativity can bring about change, development and evolution. It happened to us, and we see it happening to others.

“People are generally better at everything if they can live and work in their element”

Professor Sir Ken Robinson

We have five fundamental values. We believe that our work should be fun and enjoyable; that we should do work with purpose; that new and good ideas inspire us; that we love adventures, big and small, and that we will value and respect whom we work with if they do the same for us.

Culturapedia is a new word and a philosophical idea. It represents the evolution of a company, (Robinson Howell Partnership); a reflection of what we want to achieve and an ambition to embrace change.

If you have ideas you want to pursue, or problems to be solved creatively, come and talk to us.
