"The reason for evil in the world is that people are not able to tell their stories."

CG Jung from Freud Letters, Vol 2.

What we do

At Open Road we tell stories and give voice to others to tell theirs. 

Stories are fundamental in defining who we are – as individuals and as members of families, communities and cultures. Everyone’s story is unique and intertwined with the wider narratives of history, culture, time and place. Understanding our individual and collective stories, who writes them, the power they have over us, and the ability to re-write them, is essential in knowing who we are, our place in the world and the path we travel through life. 

How we can help

Everyone has a story to tell. Whether it’s your own experiences as one voice in a creative community project, or the story of your organisation’s strategy, vision and action plan. We’re here to help you tell it.

Here’s what we can do for you. 

  • Live Performance 
  • Digital Creative Development 
  • Project Management 
  • Fundraising and Development 
  • Community Engagement 
  • Festival Management 
  • Talent Development 
  • Research, Consultancy and Report Writing 
  • Business Support 

Rules of the Road

At Open Road we:

  • Believe everyone has the right to have their voice heard and their story listened to.
  • Believe in the power of telling the stories of our lives, our times, our histories and our hopes for the future.
  • Believe in the potential of creative work to change lives.
  • Believe in pushing boundaries and working across sectors and disciplines.
  • Believe there is more that unites than divides.

Projects & Productions

We were here and this is what we saw

We were here and this is what we saw is a series of moments in time recording where we were and what we experienced. Some moments are historical, others personal, some both. Sometimes they are articles, sometimes photo essays, sometimes films. If you have a ‘we were here and this is what we saw’ you’d like to submit then get in touch.
