Every week between March and July 2020 our Coronavirus Time Capsule group recorded their experiences of the coronavirus pandemic.

The result is a series of films that are insightful, funny, touching and capture the strange spring/summer of 2020.

The Coronavirus Time Capsule is a project run by Company Three, connecting groups of young people around the world.

The project attracted lots of press attention, with our group getting a particular mention in this article: BFI: Britain on Lockdown.

Our work with young people

Children and Young People are at the heart of what we do, as audience members, as participants and as thought leaders.

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.
