Who we are

Now in our 37th year, Fablevision has been working in communities (geographical and communities of interest) to bring transformation of the narrative we tell each other through creative community cultural development. With artists and creative, engaged, participatory practices at the core, the work has spanned more than three decades – pioneering, paving the way and spreading learning through partnership working.
