Entelechy was founded in 1991 to develop productions promoting cultural and social cohesion; work that connects disparate people living unconnected lives within the same neighbourhoods. Entelechy’s art draws on present and previous life experiences of diverse people, some with learning disabilities, or from different cultures, to build shared communities.
Their innovative work was central to the Home Office Community Cohesion Projects launched in 2000 and the company has provided artistic direction for London’s Capital Age Festival and for the Points of Contact initiative between the Brazilian and UK governments.
