We are committed to working with the widest range of young people, artists and theatre companies possible in order to enrich their experiences.
All young people are welcome at Contact. We place young people in our customer facing roles so that someone coming to the building for the first time, is able to relate to the first people they see. Our young people come from a wide range of communities and varying backgrounds with many different experiences. Some haven’t followed traditional routes into the arts. Some may have disengaged or become disaffected at school, others may come from marginalised, deprived or new communities.
Our work changes lives, improves personal development, builds confidence, teaches new skills, increases employability, breaks down barriers and can prevent anti-social behaviour.
