Project Fio 2013-2015

The aim of Project Fio was to encourage the participation in theatre and the performing arts of young people (7-19) from a diverse range of backgrounds and communities; to encourage them to explore and engage with theatre and performance activities and empower them with the initial skills, knowledge and support to enable further participation. Project Fio launched in 2013 and ran for two more consecutive years.

2017 Summer School Engagement


Before Fio, there was YOCA..

Started in 2005 in London by Artistic Director, Abdul Shayek, YOCA embodied all the same values as Fio does now. YOCA produced a variety of projects and productions, investing heavily in the community it worked and engaged with, in the ten years it was running before evolving into Fio. Productions include ‘White Riot’ by Natalie Mitchell, YOCA short film, ‘Fiver’, which premiered at British Film Institute and ‘Life on the Praca Roosevelt’ by Dea Loher.

Project Fusion 2017

In 2015, YOCA moved to Cardiff Bay and started working with groups of young women from a variety of backgrounds in 2017, exploring personal and social issues facing young women as they learn to grow and become adults.
