Open Cinema


Our Mission

To enable any individual or community to move from exclusion to participation.

Our Theory of Change

Open Cinema has developed its theory of change in the light of discoveries from our national pilot evaluation (2009-10), including through a two-day workshop facilitated in 2016 by The Social Innovation Partnership. This has continued to evolve (see slide), but remains based on a four-step process, by which we achieve our mission:

Engagement: motivating excluded people to take part in community activities

Inspiration: sparking new or renewed interests or aspirations

Development: converting interests into life or media skills through OC activities

Progression: enabling onward pathways into education, employment, and improved life circumstances.
