We believe that by delivering arts focused Black history programmes, providing teacher training and campaigning through mobilizing young people, we can facilitate social change. Our programmes are for all young people aged 8-16 and aim to equip young people with a sense of identity, and the tools for a diverse landscape. We are working towards changing the national curriculum and building a sense of identity in every young person in the UK.
