Strong Voices

A national programme funded by the Department for Education to work with 13-19 year olds that have traditionally been excluded from engaging in arts and culture.

A New Direction is working as the London delivery partner, alongside four other bridge organisations to develop this work.

In London we are partnered with London Youth, and their member youth clubs to try out different ways of working, establish new partnerships, and ensure that London’s cultural offer is as inclusive and responsive to the needs of young people as possible.

The delivery of the programme runs until March 2015 and we are currently working with four core youth clubs to establish what works for their young people and their settings.
