Designed by Berlin based artists, Kobberling and Kaltwasser, the temporary 120-seat theatre was built out of recycled and reclaimed materials. M3 volunteered to help realise the artists' vision by managing the establishment of a strategy for planning, procurement and delivery of the Jellyfish Theatre on public open land. Our guidance throughout all phases of this unique project ensured a successful and timely completion.

In 2011 the Jellyfish Theatre won the AJ Small Project of the Year award and AJ Small Projects Sustainability award.
