Youth Leadership in Creative Youth

Over the last 5 years Ovalhouse has engaged over 50 Young Associates aged 16-25 in youth leadership training and mentoring. Young Associates are selected participants who each have the opportunity to plan and develop their own arts workshop, which they are supported to deliver to attendees at one of our dance, drama or writing classes. The young people have created original performances, exhibitions, artwork and events to engage audiences of local press, senior citizens, the local police and councillors. Year five of Truth about Youth has now come to a close and has left a multitude of relationships with the community through inclusive events, workshops and performances all designed to promote a positive image of London’s young.
