We will offer young people from a diverse range of communities, opportunities and support to progress through life changing journeys from audience member to professional artist.
We provide opportunities for young people to explore and develop as artists. These journeys can begin with friends connecting in social spaces, drop in workshops, and in the focused development of Contact Young Actors Company (CYAC) and Future Fires. We are committed to engaging a diverse group of young people and providing opportunities that are free, accessible, and innovative.
Once our young people transition out of our projects and programmes they begin journeys as artists, facilitators and project managers often forming their own creative companies. In our consultations with young people the feedback was very clear that they need continued and sustained help in that transition.
