Pan Intercultural Arts

Pan uses arts for social change to empower some of the most marginalised, vulnerable and hard-to-reach young people in society.

Founded 1986

  • Mission statement

    Pan’s Projects use theatre, music, film, visual arts and other arts forms to give particiapnts a voice to express their hopes and their fears and a way to reflect on choices they make so that they can realise their potential and live better futures.

    Our programmes reach over 2000 people in London annually and include:
    • AMIES – working with female victims of trafficking when they escape from the sex trade or domestic slavery. We work to overcome their trauma, develop self confidence and enter education and training.
    • WEAPON OF CHOICE – a core group of young people who live close to gang, gun and knife crime create performances to challenge their peers in Youth Offending Schemes and Pupil Referral Units to look at the consequences of their choices.
    • FUTURE – unaccompanied minors seeking asylum from conflict zones overcome trauma through rediscovering creativity and a sense that they can both trust and enjoy life in their new community.
    • FORTUNE – young adult refugees and asylum seekers, many who are victims of torture, use theatre and film to reflect on their lives, explore ideas emerging from meeting each other and then offer performances back to their new “host” community.
    • We also have a wide international theatre for development programme training trainers to do similar work.

    We plan to increase participant numbers to 10,000 a year by expanding activities to 9 other UK cities over the next 5-years.
