We are a Community Interest Company using drama and the arts as a medium to make a positive social impact. We do this by creating initiatives that enable people to learn, develop and grow in all aspects of their educational and emotional development whether that is through classroom based learning or community campaigns. Our company is based on these principles;
We EXPLORE challenging issues which affect the children and young people within our community.
We EDUCATE those children using exciting, creative programmes designed to find practical and inspiring solutions.
We EMPOWER them, allowing the new generation to flourish with confidence and resilience.
Children and Young People
We use the arts as a medium to talk about, and explore the social and emotional difficulties they may be facing in their daily lives and generate strategies for self help.
On average we work with 10,000 children a year. Each of our projects is designed to make a significant positive impact. By listening and responding directly to the needs of our community, we aim to promote opportunities for children to lead happier, healthier and safer lives.
