Last week The Ripple Effect Theatre Group took to the stage with their production of PUNCH& JUDY – a personal portrayal about domestic abuse. It was powerful & emotive … and transformative in some cases. Their performances were inspiring and their hard work in developing the production really paid off. I feel so honoured to work with such amazing and resilient human beings and am looking forward to developing the next production with them. Photos by the awesome Tony Walker.

We are raising money to help fund some of the creative work we do with people in RECOVERY. The Ripple Effect is a project of Exeter Community Initiatives who work with people who are facing poverty, inequality and homelessness. The Ripple Effect itself is a project that works with anyone in RECOVERY by providing meaningful activity to help change old patterns and create new positive ones. This includes Drama, Mindfulness, Yoga, Photography, Arts, Nature Walks and more. All activities are FREE to participants.
Creativity – and in particular performance – in RECOVERY is a powerful tool for individual & community change, and funding for the arts is essential. Through the performance work that the Ripple Effect does we have shown increases in participant’s self-confidence, imagination, empathy, co-operation, communication, and a developed appreciation of the Arts; Positive & supportive friendships are formed; internal voices & opinions are given space to be heard; and authentic self-expression is developed.
