We believe every voice has value and every young person has the right to be heard.
Young people are all naturally creative, and each has unique perspective on the world. We support them in expressing this.
We encourage young people to think for themselves, nurturing self-belief and personal development through spoken word poetry.
Working in a fun, relaxed environment and putting young people's opinions, ideas and feelings first inspires young people to want to learn, become leaders and make positive changes within our community.
The way we work allows young people to fully engage with creative writing, often in the form of poetry, spoken word, public speaking, rap, storytelling or comedy.
Many young people come alive, and truly thrive at what is often their first opportunity to share something they’ve written in front of a group of peers who listen, respect and value their voice.
Through discussion, creative writing and performance we encourage young people to engage with social issues. We ask questions such as ‘What’s important to you?’ and ‘What would you like to change about the world?'
In a time of multiple global crises, the process of writing as a tool for young people to create art, express their ideas and inspire change has never been more essential.
Greta Thunberg is just one example of so many young people who can and will change the world. We aim to support as many young people as possible on their individual journey to finding their voice.
