Vision & Aims

Greenwich & Lewisham Young People’s Theatre (GLYPT) makes relevant, inclusive and challenging theatre for, with and by young people.  We use the power of the arts to enrich the lives of young people and audiences and seek to enable, empower and challenge participants through delivering work of artistic excellence. We do this by:

  • Producing professional theatre for our own and other venues, including schools and community settings
  • Offering theatre and inclusive arts opportunities in the form of after school groups, weekend and holiday activities
  • Creating progression routes for young people to move from education into the creative industries and creative work place
  • Delivering drama and arts projects in schools and the wider community
  • Delivering artistic projects for young people who are at risk of exclusion

 

Our Aims:

  • To create theatre that explores the world in which young people live. Challenging, questioning and raising possibilities for change
  • To create a range of inclusive participatory opportunities for people to experience the power and enjoyment of theatre and the arts
  • To give young people the opportunity to produce quality performances and achieve their artistic potential through performance work
  • To build confidence and self-esteem in young people, and give them the ability to work cooperatively
  • To empower young people who are marginalized in society, are hard-to-reach and are at risk of exclusion, through drama and the arts
  • To give those who may have limited access to the arts a chance to make them integral to their lives
  • To nurture the talent and skills of young people, in particular emerging young artists and support their journey into the professional creative industries
  • To engage parents and carers of the young people with whom we work, in the life of the company
  • To build a sustainable audience for theatre and the arts in areas of historical low arts engagement
  • To actively encourage and reflect equality and diversity in all our work
