Generation Arts delivers high quality, free accredited and non-accredited acting and theatre-making projects for young people in the margins in London.

We specialise in working with young people NEET and who may be at risk or have experienced a range of social exclusion risk factors including long-term unemployment, leaving care, offending, gang-affiliation and homelessness.

We train and develop our young people in every way to prepare them for drama school training, higher education and the world of work.

Over the past two years, 100% of graduates have progressed onto acting training, including courses at Central, Guildhall, Drama Centre, LAMDA, ArtsEd, ALRA, East 15, Rose Bruford and Mountview.

No-one is left behind and we provide 1-1 signposting to support all participants to progress.

Our facilitators are professional theatre directors, teachers and youth workers experienced delivering high quality theatre projects working with a range of groups.
