We believe that theatre has the power to empower young people and inspire change on both an individual level and in a wider social context. Your support will enable us to engage more young people and empower their diverse voices through workshops and projects both in and out of school.
Projects such as the International Youth Encounter offer life-changing experiences through direct engagement with young people from across Europe: “This opportunity to meet like-minded creative people from across Europe, to perform in a different country and be part of the first group of people to perform a new text was brilliant… …My time in Berlin was a time of self-discovery.” (Angela Legg on International Youth Encounter).
From the point of view of the students, it had a more profound effect than any other project.”

Projects such as the International Theatre Club, Commissioners and Creative Critics not only give young people across the UK direct access to leading European artists and plays but opportunities to directly influence and take ownership of our work.
Your support can enable us to extend the reach of these projects to more young people, engaging more schools and exploring new ways to empower our audiences. Investment of £10,000 can support 100 young people in an extended project that can significantly increase their creative and critical skills.
“The experience has been life changing, not only for the children, but for the staff involved too.”
