Young Storyhouse is a collective of year-round programmes at Storyhouse which provide young people (aged 14-25) with a focus on creativity, providing real-life industry experience in the arts and libraries, as well as supporting them in gaining new skills, building friendships and achieving qualifications.
Members of Young Storyhouse have created, produced and marketed their own film, music and theatre festivals, written, devised and performed brand new pieces of theatre, designed lighting and sound as part of the technical team, completed nationally-recognised awards, organised and led activities, chaired panel discussions, and much more.
Young Storyhouse has three strands – Young Leaders, Young Company, and also Youth Theatre (for 5-13 year olds). Find out more below.
Young Leaders supports young people in being creative, gaining new skills, building friendships and getting a qualification. We’ve worked with young people to find out what they want and need, and here they will receive mentoring, training and given practical opportunities to help them develop, create and grow both professionally and personally.
Young Leaders trains and creates opportunities for young people by getting them involved in all aspects of running Storyhouse – from acting and backstage to programming and marketing and more.
