Our history

Charcoalblue was founded from a desire to do things differently, to challenge norms and build a new approach to collaborative relationships. Common ownership, equity, diversity and a shared vision for the future were critical ideas for our foundation.

Social responsibility

Through outreach, sponsorship and volunteering we contribute a portion of our time, skills and profit to support the theatre industry. We work with causes and organisations who share our vision to make theatre - and, by extension, the wider world - a better place.
