Citadel Arts Children & Families Agency and Cultured, St Helens Local Cultural Education Partnership and St Helens Young People’s Drug and Alcohol Team are jointly commissioning an alcohol awareness project to tackle the issue of teenage alcohol consumption in St Helens.
Citadel Arts: Previously operating The Citadel Arts Centre, Citadel Arts is a new, children and families’ agency in St Helens providing performance and participation opportunities exclusively in the public realm.
Funded by Arts Council England & St Helens Council Citadel Arts makes people’s lives better in St Helens by offering three strands of activity:
- Children & Family Theatre Programme in non-traditional spaces in the Public Realm
- Creative Participation Programme in Community settings
- Co-commissioning for the public realm and community settings
Citadel Arts delivers a weekly Creative Participation programme – using creativity and the arts to help local people of all ages, abilities and walks of life by benefiting mental health and general wellbeing, giving people confidence, helping people to feel less isolated and giving people a sense of pride and purpose in what they can achieve. Through the arts they transform local lives in St Helens.
St Helens Youth Theatre provides 60 workshops per year, engaging up to 50 young people each week, living in areas of high deprivation and low arts engagement.
Through St Helens Youth Theatre they help young people to learn new skills, feel more confident, make new friends and to have higher aspirations for their future.
Submissions to be sent to Fay Lamb, Chief Executive, Citadel Arts [email protected] by Friday 15th November 2019.
