What are we aiming to do?
We believe the arts have a unique and important role to play in building a shared identity for our community.
The creative arts produce intense shared experiences and communicate our stories, values and beliefs both to ourselves and to others with singular power and effectiveness.
We are passionate about strengthening Quaker identity and bring Quaker values to the wider community.
Our mission statement states:
The Leaveners welcomes anyone whether a Friend or not to experience the power of the creative spirit to release energy, vision and a commitment. Through the use of participatory art, especially music and drama, we aim to give expression to contemporary Quaker values and faith and to raise awareness of issues of social injustice, non-violence and spirituality.
