Inclusive Interactive Imaginative
We involve communities in creative projects that inspire wellbeing, break down barriers and engages people in the process of personal and social change.
We have been working with young people and communities in Hackney and East London for 25 years to ensure access for all to arts activities that break down barriers and engage people in debate. Immediate Theatre’s vision is for a society where questioning, articulate and motivated people create and collaborate to build thriving communities.
Pathways to Employment
We provide creative programmes and one-to-one support to help participants develop their skills & explore potential career opportunities. We offer a range of support options for those still in education through to the long-term unemployed.
Estate-based Youth Theatres
We have been providing high quality open access youth theatres on estates in Hackney since 1998. The programme has engaged thousands of participants who do not traditionally have access to arts opportunities. All our sessions are free, inclusive and open to all.
Working with Schools
We provide a range of performances and workshops to enrich and support the school curriculum. Using innovative approaches, we aim to tackle key issues and increase achievement of young people.
We have a track-record of creating excellent work with older people including productions toured to lunch/social clubs and sheltered housing venues, and inter-generational participatory projects.
Hackney Social Radio
A weekly radio programme for the young at heart.
Hackney Social Audio
An intergenerational podcast celebrating art, heritage and the vibrancy of the diverse community of Hackney.
