Young People

We believe every child and young person should have the opportunity to experience the richness of the arts. Prism Arts aims to improve the delivery and diversity of arts opportunities, raising the standard of art being produced for, with and by children and young people.

Since 2012 Prism Arts has been delivering advocacy programmes of arts participation for young people in special schools, colleges and day care centres across Cumbria. The advocacy programme has involved a series of workshops, exhibitions, performances and taster sessions enabling us to build new partnerships and knowledge about the creative interests and needs of young people with learning disabilities. We will use this knowledge to ensure that our future arts courses meet the needs of young people.

Studio Theatre

We always showcase work produced during the workshops to peers, families and carers in order to build awareness of the skills of young people and promote the benefits of engaging in the arts.

If you would like Prism Arts to come and work with your school, college or youth group please contact us. In 2012/13 we would particularly like to develop new links with youth groups, schools and colleges in West Cumbria.

Our Studio Theatre courses are designed around working with young people with learning disability. Click here to find out more.

Celebrating Youth 

Between 2012 and 2015 our work with young people will form part of Cumbria County Council’s Celebrating Youth programme. The Celebrating Youth programme aims to highlight the talents, skills and potential of young people across Cumbria and to recognise the contribution they make to communities in the county. Watch out for Celebrating Youth logos on events and activities that have been supported by Cumbria County Council as part of this important programme.
