Our impact

We have strong evidence that shows that taking part in arts activities can have a lasting and transforming effect on the lives of young people.

Our activities help people gain confidence and self esteem, raising aspiration and improving communication skills and life chances.

We make sure that there are lots of ways for people to learn new skills with all our activities.

Working specifically with local schools and academies to reintegrate excluded young people, we show that involvement in creative activities can reveal alternative life choices for people from deprived areas.

Raising aspiration then leads to a desire to achieve, and this in turn can lead to renewed engagement in education, employment or frequently in the creative industries, towards self-employment.
