Minerva Arts

Minerva Arts

Minerva Arts was set up in 2009 by Steph Brocken and Hayley Wood, two ex-students of the University of Chester. The company was founded with an interdisciplinary ethos, drawing on their backgrounds in Live Performance, multimedia technology and visual arts and crafts.
Minerva took over the former Chester Gateway Youth Theatre from Off The Ground in April 2011 and since then have developed three additional groups creating unusual and contemporary performance right across Cheshire West.

In the past two years Minerva has expanded to develop and fundraise for our own projects. In 2013 we were successful in gaining Grants for the Arts funding for the Arts in the Villages project and we had further success with achiving funding for the first phase of the Lynk Cheshire Project in 2014. As well as this, we partnered with River Niger Arts in 2013 to win funds from the Heritage Lottery Fund to create the Wirral to West Africa project and were then again funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund to create the Souling project. For information on all these projects, head to our Archive page.

Minerva Arts is all about enabling young people to have access to the cutting edge of performance and art, creating unusual experience that have positive processes and relationships at heart. We believe that this is true of all our work from our Youth Theatres to projects with school and community groups.
