A Community Interest Company that breaks the fourth wall. 

Soundproofbox is a creative arts Community Interest Company that turns up the volume on critical social issues affecting our communities to educate and inspire change. 
Many victims of abuse feel unheard or that their voices have been taken away. It can be hard to speak out against violence, coercive control, bullying, harassment, and other forms of abuse. 
Through interactive theatre, creative workshops and engaging talks, we invite the audience into the story, raising awareness and understanding as well as empowering victims and bystanders to change the narrative and stamp out unhealthy relationships. 
Our work with schools, organisations and businesses enables us to provide free support for survivors of domestic abuse, helping them regain their voice and move forward with confidence.
