Work With Us: Universities

“The Cap-a-Pie team are incredible to work with. The process from first meeting to transforming our research into a compelling piece of theatre was marvellous to be a part of.  Cap-a-Pie are great listeners, great fun to work with and highly talented creative practitioners – working with them has been a joy.”

Cap-a-Pie works with academics and researchers so they can connect with people outside universities and help their work to have more impact.

We work in partnership with researchers to make sure we fully understand the research so we can bring it to life.

We enable researchers to engage creatively with lots of different groups, including primary schools, theatre audiences, charities and community groups.

The way we work creates a two-way conversation, allowing researchers to listen to and co-create with communities, as well as sharing knowledge and insight.

We partner with researchers at all stages of their work, from setting a research question to sharing findings.

Our partnership work has contributed towards Impact Case Studies and helped universities and researchers to achieve meaningful and effective Public Engagement.
