Whether your thing is anything, from using sticky back plastic to making snow angels, The Society wants YOU!!!

The History

Cathy Dunbar and Helen Judge initiated The Society of Xtras in 2007. Our first event involved making a life size set of a front living room where people were invited to do in impromptu public performances. Since then, events have included, making films on a man-made beach and knitting furniture.

We are intensely interested in the context in which art is produced and have set about making things with people in various settings. Over the past five years the Society of Xtras has made work with people at festivals, art centres, community arts event, new build artists interventions, public spaces and commercial premises.
