In October 2007, the NPO “Theater Network Ehime” was established to promote culture and arts with a focus onperforming arts. The objectives of the organization are to develop human resources, raise awareness, maintain creative spaces, and provide opportunities for culture and arts.
 
In Matsuyama city, the capital of Ehime prefecture, the number of venues for local theatrical performanceswas limited, which made us move from place to place and finally opened our third private small theater, “Theater Neco”, in May 2012. It was rent from a part of an abandoned kindergarten and renovated into a 98-capacity theater, which is also managed and operated by the NPO.

In 2018, we renovated a rehearsal room alongside the theater and established the “Kaze no Neko (mainly for the mentally handicapped),” a continuous employment support B-type business. Since that time, it has been exploring the possibilities of workshops and works using theatrical techniques with people with disabilities and people in the community, through inviting artists and instructors to create. 

2007年10月 「NPO法人シアターネットワークえひめ」を設立し舞台芸術を軸とした文化芸術の振興を目指し活動を展開。文化芸術に対する人材育成・啓発活動・創造空間整備・鑑賞機会の提供などを事業目的とする。

愛媛の県都松山市には地域の演劇発表の場が乏しく、あちこち転々とし3カ所目の2012年5月民間小劇場「シアターねこ」をオープン。廃止した幼稚園の一部を賃借しキャパ98の劇場に改装し、NPO法人が管理運営を兼務している。

2018年にはシアターと並ぶ練習室を改装し就労継続支援B型事業所「風のねこ(主に精神障がい者)」設置。その頃から障害のある方や、地域の人たちと演劇手法を使ったWSや作品作りをアーティストや講師を招き模索中。
