The Workshop—Our Purpose..
Our building and organisation is a vibrant hub of young artistic talent that has embraced a membership of young people from all walks of life. We understand that maturing isn’t easy, we are here to provide that psychological safety net and extra hand along the way to ensure that our members are well equipped to take on the wider world and be confident in making their own decisions.
What do they need to achieve that? – Self-esteem, self-discipline, self-confidence and self-worth.
To achieve our goals we use the Arts as a tool to implement social change and instil these positive aspects in to the individual. It is through a series of productions, which include an intense and short rehearsal period, along with a series of classes that their personal needs are nurtured.
Although we are a viewed as a ‘Youth Theatre’ our members are encouraged to take risks and push themselves that little bit further to overcome their inhibitions.
Our objective is not to create actors, but to develop young people into thoughtful, confident adults.
