Barking and Dagenham's FIRST programme exploring being young, black and living with mental health. For ages 14-21. Find out more here
We know that being involved with the arts as a participant or as an audience member can have a profound effect on people’s lives. Whether it is running a film project for young people at risk of exclusion or giving adults with learning difficulties the chance to create stories and perform in front of an audience, we know that life is made more enjoyable and rewarding when we spend time doing something creative with a group of friends, old and new.
We work with people of all age groups from all communities living in Barking & Dagenham. We want to make arts accessible to all and promote the many benefits that being involved in the arts can bring.
