Through our landmark ART31 project we are working with young people and partners in Kent to create new opportunities through the arts for under 25's across the county.
Below are some of our current projects focused on the development of young people.

Fantastic and fun sessions for ages 5-18 years, encouraging creativity and developing theatre making skills. Sessions run during school term-times.
We want to #ChangeKent. How? By creating more artistic events and opportunities for young people. By motivating young people to be creative, and to try art forms they wouldn’t usually think of. By introducing them to new work that they may not have been able to access before. By developing relationships between arts organisations and young people, leading young people to take control and get involved in making decisions.
TECH31KENT’s weekly training sessions will introduce 13-18 year olds to the technical side of theatre, providing training to young people and on job experience of working back stage in a theatre and other live events.
