Increase choice and opportunity for young people from ethnic groups, minority groups that are excluded from various social activities due to financial circumstances. We aim to provide mental health awareness, inclusivity, gender equality and build social integration by breaking down stereotypical barriers, fostering the global cross-culture knowledge and understanding of young people.

In addressing these priorities we seek to increase attendance and participation by supporting the public to help shape local arts by increasing choice and opportunities for young people to experience and be inspired.

This will improve quality of life under cultural mediated conditions of freedom and prevail a human language consisting of categories of creativity and of productivity.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
I really found it so useful. I thought I was going to go to just learn from some teachers but it was so much more than that. I came away refreshed from some of the wise words said & new from pioneers which I am using and adding to my practice now. I took part in classes I would have been too nervous to take in real life so I'm looking forward to considering pushing myself out of my comfort zone and taking class from other teachers
