Haringey Youth Festival10th Anniversary
3pm on Saturday 29th October 2022 at Collage Arts
Please come to the 10th anniversary of the Haringey Youth Festival at 3pm on Saturday 29th October. Young people from Collage Arts, Haringey Shed and Jacksons Lane will be coming together for an exciting day of arts workshops and performance at Collage Arts’ McQueens Theatre, celebrating 10 years of the festival.
Improving access to the arts has been at the heart of the festival from its inception. It has always been free to attend, even when there has been no additional external funding available.
Attendees over the years have participated in a variety of workshops from different facilitators and organisations e.g. Frantic Assembly and Zoonation, including body percussion, fine art, singing, street dance, circus skills and spoken word.
Natalia Cid, Head of Creative Engagement at Jacksons Lane explains, ‘Haringey Youth Festival is one of the highlights of the year for our young people; they are always looking forward to working and sharing experiences with the other groups and so proud to perform on stage. The festival is a great example of the amazing work arts organisations in Haringey are doing to showcase the positive work and creativity of our young people.’
Amalia Cohen, ex-participant of the festival and Collage Arts’ MC for the 2022 festival says, ‘The Festival has always been such a good opportunity to try out something new in the different workshops, see the various brilliant art spaces in Haringey as well as watch other young people perform what they love doing.’
Jim Shepley, Executive Director of Haringey Shed says, ‘Jim Shepley, Executive Director of Haringey Shed says, ‘It’s so important for our young people to connect with each other. It’s great to bring all these organisations together who are doing such great work in Haringey. The creative arts are so important for young people and are such a great tool to develop their skills.’
