About

Who we are

Collingwood is run by Chris Simes and Lindsay Richards. We have a combined 30 years experience in theatre in education, live training using theatre, role play, and simulation, plus media projects for the education and training sectors. Our backgrounds are from teaching, theatre and media arts. Our team and partners include expert trainers, teachers, video specialists, web designers and actors.

Why we do this

We love to use live and media arts as a tool to make learning engaging. It doesn’t matter what the topic is, we can create the conditions which will help people learn. Knowledge is just knowledge. We want to galvanise people to apply that knowledge. We want them emotionally engaged, believing they can make changes in their own lives and the lives of others.

What we can do for you

As you’ll see from our blog, we are diverse in the projects we deliver. These include theatre in education, live training events, videos, and online resources. Our clients range from Councils, to the NHS, and global brands. Ultimately, if you want to engage with an ‘audience’ in a unique, memorable, and sustainable way, then get in touch.
