About Good Chance
In 2015, two British playwrights Joe Murphy and Joe Robertson visited the Calais Jungle refugee camp. There they found a spontaneous international community on our doorstep, people living side-by-side, struggling for survival, waiting for their ‘good chance’. When the Joes realised something was missing — a space of welcome for people of all nationalities to come together to share stories and music, relax and make things — a different kind of Good Chance was born. Along with hundreds of the camp residents, they built the first theatre: a groundbreaking centre of welcome and creative expression.
Since it was founded, Good Chance, creators of The Jungle and The Walk with Little Amal has provided 250 refugee artists with 1-2-1 support in the UK as well as placing over 750 artists from refugee and migrant backgrounds in paid employment and training, including many people they originally met in the Calais Jungle, and with whom they are still making new work today. Good Chance runs several full-time programmes supporting migrants and refugees in the UK including the Good Chance Ensemble, a programme which tackles barriers to entry for refugee artists in theatre and art today.
