Charity information

Concrete Canvas Arts

Concrete canvas Arts is a registered charity that offers an innovative and pro-active learning environment for children and young people. We aim to help young people develop core skills by building their capacity and confidence through personal development, teamwork and mentoring. Through our core activities, Concrete Canvas Arts aims to produce inspired, assertive employable individuals who will be valuable members of the market place as well as providing positive role models and contributors within our community.

Through arts and media activities, we at Concrete Canvas Arts help to develop key life skills within children and young people to assist their progress in life. We aim to develop confidence, team skills, communication skills, and help motivate those that are lacking in self-esteem, encouraging them to achieve higher levels of attainment through creative expression. We take our work into schools, colleges, youth clubs, Pupil Referral Units and other areas of inner city communities. We are also further developing the following activities:

•Out of school provision of fashion, drama, dance, singing and filmmaking clubs.
•Local weekend arts provision.
•Workshops within schools and youth clubs concerning sexual health, drugs awareness, anti social behaviour and environmental issues through the development of theatre for young people by young people.
•Pupil mentoring initiatives through our core training programmes where we promote individuals that have undertaken our courses and take them into youth clubs and pupil referral units to act as mentors to other young people.
