SUPPORT OUR WORK

About the company

Since 2008 Islington Community Theatre has worked with thousands of young people across Islington, providing them with opportunities that would otherwise simply not exist.

We create space for young people and the best theatre-makers to collaborate, explore and learn together through nationally acclaimed, innovative and free to access projects and productions.

We help our participants gain essential personal, social and vocational skills, understanding of the world around them and appreciation for the arts.  We have a unique recruitment process: working with teachers and youth workers to ensure that every participant is offered a place based on how much they will benefit.

Our work has a massive impact on the young people that we work with: building confidence and self-esteem and helping them develop relationships that transcend their normal cultural groups and postcodes.  We help our young people gain places in college, University and Drama School as well as jobs and apprenticeships.

Our young people say that being in ICT is like being part of a family. We have a ten year plan for all of our members and we care for them as individuals who have an important contribution to make to the company, to the arts and to society as a whole.
