Youth Arts


We deliver a programme of youth arts in East Cambridgeshire and beyond with a range of organisational partners. Our projects focus on providing opportunities for ages 8-18 to become directly involved in artistic creation, particularly with children and young people who are hard to reach or who have reduced access to the arts. Delivered by professional artists, using theatre, dance & music, visual arts, film & new technologies we challenge young people to participate, create, enjoy and achieve in the arts. Our projects are funded through project grants.

On Friday 7 June Ely College will host a unique show which mixes Hip Hop music, spoken word and physical theatre. Country Boy’s Struggle is a debut solo show written and performed by Maxwell Golden and presented by Contact and NRTF. Maxwell plays over 30 different characters as the story follows an MC’s journey from the cliffs of Cornwall to the streets of London.

The performance is being organised by ADeC (Arts development in East Cambridgeshire) who are working with students from Ely College as part of their Challenge and Develop programme.
