Project Description

Arts Night

We run weekly arts nights at our hub in Oval, London. At these creative skills-based workshops, 15-25 young people come together to explore the issues affecting them, using the arts to convey their messages to the wider public

There is a variety of projects and activities, including music production, poetry, drumming, dance, capoeira, painting, fashion and printing.

For example, 32 young people created performances, workshops and an exhibition to contribute to the Southbank Centre’s Adopting Britain Festival, celebrating migration. Forty young people also worked together to produce short films as part of the BFI’s ‘Coming to the UK’ event.

In the past, we have worked on some high profile projects and events. These included a stage production of Benjamin Zephaniah’s Refugee Boy and the ‘Architects of Our Republic’ project, commemorating 50 years since Martin Luther King’s ‘I have a dream’ speech, both at the Southbank Centre.
