Who we are
Established in 1985, Collage Arts is a community arts organisation dedicated to offering platforms to underrepresented voices and communities. Based in the heart of Haringey, we offer inclusive drama, singing and writing classes for all age groups, whilst also providing vital outreach work with schools, pupil referral units and support groups advocating for the rights of migrants and refugees. It is our fundamental belief that the arts are a vital means of connection and expression, with an intrinsic value of human creativity in connection to self and each other, needed now more than ever.
What do we do
We believe that the arts should be made accessible to all, and so as well as our outreach projects, Collage Voices offers a rich programme of drama, singing and writing classes every Saturday for over 150 young people ranging from 7-30 years old, for only £2.50 a class with full bursaries available.
All our tutors are drawn from the professional industry and work within our in-house theatre and suite of recording studios. Over the last two years we have supported over 30 young artists to secure places at leading drama schools such as RADA, Guildhall, Lamda, The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, Rose Bruford, Alra, East 15, and many more. We are supported in delivering this work by our wonderful patrons, Danny Sapani, Martina Laird and Phoebe Waller-Bridge just to name a few! As part of our commitment to accessibility, we also support emerging artists by offering them creative spaces and expertise. We regularly offer our community theatre space to new artists, actors, writers and directors to develop exciting new projects, rehearse and showcase new work.
This is just the tip of the iceberg of what we do, and we want to do so much more! Our work is far from done, and we need to continue to open doors, and break down barriers.
