Kings Youth: Street Sessions

Thursdays | 3 Feb-24 Mar | 7-9pm

Kings Youth is Hackney Showroom’s new project for young people who live in and around Kings Crescent Estate.

Over an 8 week period from 3 Feb our detached youth team, Dorran and Bex will be out and about on Kings Crescent, getting to know young people in the area. If you see them, come and say hi! If you have young people kicking about with nothing to do, they are welcome to pop down to Hackney Showroom on Murrain Road where they’ll find friendly faces keen to meet them.

For 8 weeks Dorran & Bex want to get to know local youth, find out what fires you up, what inspires you, what frustrates you and what activities you’d like Hackney Showroom to deliver for you.

After the 8 weeks of street sessions, we’re delivering a series of micro-projects on a range of different topics, a chance for young people to get a taste of different projects to identify what they’d like to do more of.

First up is KINGS YOUTH WRITE & PERFORM – a 4 week mini project where we get you to create and perform your own piece of poetry or theatre, followed by KINGS YOUTH: HEALTHY RELATIONSHIPS – a 4 week project of lively debate and discussion about relationships that matter to you.

Kings Youth is Supported by London Borough of Hackney Reopening Fund.
