Communities Working with Theatre Peckham

Theatre Peckham works with an extensive range of creative professionals throughout our local and national community in order for inspirational artists to meet aspirational young people, bringing them together to create meaningful, world-class projects. We invite all to join in with our programme of work that extends beyond our building; we welcome applications from local schools, youth groups and other groups in the community. Our practitioners use performing arts as a vehicle to unlock ideas, feed creativity and evoke social change.
