At Alchemy Arts, a good education is viewed as imperative. We see education as a tool for social mobility and a strong foundation for future success. Through the facilitation of young people’s personal, social and educational development, we aim to equip them with the relevant skills required to have a voice and reach their full potential in life.

Our team work nationwide within educational establishments linking in with school curriculums allowing student work to be graded for GCSE's.We are experienced in working with young people in schools, youth centres and alternative education projects as well as young people who are not in any form of education, employment or training (NEET), young offenders, young people at risk of being involved the criminal justice system, teenage parents and young refugees.

Our work can range from 'a play in a week' with a group of 25 students to a 12 week project that culminates in a theatre performance or professionally edited short film on a chosen subject(s).
