This article sheds light on the role of co-produced creative methods in creating change, with particular reference to marginalized communities and taboo topics. In doing so, the paper offers a vignette of a day-long theatrical outreach event exploring the topic of female genital mutilation (FGM). Our paper offers discussion of how creative methods can facilitate individual and collective change surrounding taboo topics, such as FGM, rather than the often discussed relationship between creative methods and organizational change. Furthermore, we suggest that co-produced creative methods are beneficial in providing communities with opportunities to approach taboo societal issues in new and inclusive ways.
