Inclusive. Interactive. Imaginative
Estate to Stage
Estate to Stage enables us to extend our drama projects for vulnerable young people who are underachieving, at high risk of becoming Not in Education Employment or Training (NEET) or are already excluded, across Hackney and Tower Hamlets.
The project works with young people to:
- Increase the development of social, personal and communication skills, giving the confidence to live active, healthy and positive lives.
- Improve access to further training and careers in the arts by learning new skills in theatre.
- Broaden perspectives by exploring issues pertinent to their lives in a positive and creative way.
- Share ideas with local communities and decision makers, promoting social inclusion and positive relationships with the wider community and enabling participants to value themselves as citizens.
- Reduce the risk of becoming involved in crime, drug misuse and early pregnancy by providing stimulating, creative and educational activities at high-risk times.
The Estate to Stage encompasses our Estate Based Youth Theatre and Interactions projects.
Our Estate Based Youth Theatres create a platform so that the voices of young people can be heard. This also helps improve relationships between the young people and the wider community.
‘Interactions’ provides opportunities for young people to develop life skills through the arts and signposts them on to positive destinations in education, employment and training.
