Emergency Exit Arts has extensive experience of delivering tailor-made projects that respond to young people’s agendas.
EEA’s Youth Arts programme encourages young people to become creative activists through collaborations with professional Street Arts practitioners. Our projects are designed to empower young people, up to age 25, to express their ideas to people in public spaces. Positive transformation is at the centre of the work, allowing young people to make change happen through the engagement of performative and artistic experiences. This work takes place in:
- Primary and secondary schools
- Community settings
By working outdoors the audience and performer are set free from the constraints of formal or paid for arts, leaving space for invention, improvisation and interaction. It is a space where surprise is sought and anything is possible - moments that are shared in the instant and are completely unrepeatable.
“EEA are brilliant at twisting learning into a fun, innovative and surprising experience. The young people got so much out of their encounter with EEA’s team who helped them to realise their artistic vision and their own creative potential.”
