Situation

We have conducted extensive research with Lambeth Council, arts organisations, and drama teachers from schools across the area and have shown that there are currently no borough-wide free youth theatre schemes for young people that offer classes workshops and ultimately performances on a professional stage. Lambeth has some of the highest levels of unemployment in the country with many teens coming from jobless homes. These classes will help them develop the skills they need to break this cycle

Solution

Drama and the performing arts are an unparalleled vehicle for increasing the confidence, self respect, self responsibility, social inclusion and interpersonal skills of young and developing minds. LOST is a Youth Theatre Company that has put down very strong roots in Lambeth and has a commitment to work with its local community. We work with local youth groups and schools helping to support their work and offering a professional outlet for young talent that they would never have access to.
