Pan Intercultural Arts uses intercultural performance work to help facilitate self-expression and promote deeper understanding of our changing cultural identities. They empower people to use the arts as a tool for change in their lives.
John Martin is a founding member of Pan and its artistic director. John is passionate about the Arts and about using dance, drama and music to heal and to rehabilitate. Arts for Social Change works to support the rehabilitation of people affected by war, natural disaster and poverty in many countries. He regularly writes and teaches on issues around interculturalism, creativity and theatre for development in UK and abroad.
Lifelines through its association with Nelumbo is an equally passionate supporter of PAN. In order to support its emergency work during the current COVID-19 crisis, the Nelumbo provided emergency funding for IT equipment, online therapy and interactive online classes.
