MANIFESTO

A call to action; a prescription for the world we want to build.

This is not a dress rehearsal; the time to act is now. 

Make art; make trouble; make change. 

Disrupt convention.

Pass your privilege around. 

Inclusion is cool, equity is hot, queerness is assumed and gender is not.

We need a great planet to make great art.

Let's have fun.

OUR WORK

a pink and orange star shape

Creating electrifying experiences for audiences and cultivating thriving creative communities.

 

Our flagship event is the critically-acclaimed VAULT Festival, the UK’s leading independent showcase of live performance and artistic talent, which has delivered over 3,000 bold and brilliant shows to over 476,000 audience members since 2012. This is complimented by our work-in-progress festival, A Pinch of VAULT, and creative development opportunities like VAULT Young Company, VAULT New Writers, Directors & Critics, and VAULT Five which we deliver throughout the year. 

 

We are creators and proprietors of The Glitch, a vibrant artsy café, bar, and creative space in the heart of Waterloo. The Glitch provides space for artists to meet, work, and share new material and for community-led events and groups to meet in comfort and safety.

 

We’re passionate about placemaking and developing projects that put culture at the heart of our community. As well as a number of incredible murals; public art installations, and bespoke pop-up and immersive experiences; we produce VAULT Quests, immersive clue hunts that follow a trail of clues as you explore the local area.

 

Opening in 2024, our new multi-space venue will host a range of creative opportunities, festivals and events throughout the year; developing and showcasing bold new work from diverse artists and creating electrifying experiences for audiences.

 

We believe a happy and healthy world is one that is diverse, inclusive, accessible, and sustainable. We’re working be leaders in these key areas of a civic society.
