Connecting Youth Culture

A positive impact through the arts  

A dedicated team specialising in arts for young people, our Connecting Youth Culture workshops are professional and affordable, delivering a service which enhances the skills and interests of young people across North Yorkshire. 

Over 40 arts and cultural workshops that encourage a different approach to learning and can engage in ways that traditional methods cannot. Creating a fun, and interactive experience to tackle sometimes difficult subjects. 

Our benefits 

From theatre, dance, art and media, to more unique workshops such as circus skills they have been designed to be effective with all audiences.  These can range from half day sessions, all the way up to large scale events such as festivals, whatever your requirements we can accommodate. 


Through experience we have found that the correct combination of art forms and approaches have greater success with different young people, particularly those deemed to be at risk, vulnerable or disengaged. 

With all our workshops run by professional artists who are DBS checked and come complete with appropriate equipment and materials, you can be confident that the service we deliver will meet your needs and requirements. 

More than that, we can also offer accreditation through the Arts Award and ASDAN. This is a range of qualifications that support young people to develop as artists and art leaders. The programme develops their creativity, leadership and communication skills.
