Scene & Heard
A unique project partnering inner-city children of Somers Town with theatre professionals.
Scene & Heard is a unique mentoring project that partners the inner-city children of Somers Town, London with volunteer theatre professionals. They give the children intensive, one-to-one adult attention, enabling them to write plays which are then performed by professional actors.
Their performances give children immediate and public experiences of success, raising their aspirations and boosting their self-esteem. Scene & Heard is committed to producing the highest quality theatre with and for the Somers Town community. Their work improves literacy skills and attitudes towards education and develops communication and social skills.
Scene & Heard believe that in order to have a real and lasting impact we must offer more than a one-off experience; they invite children back to continue working with them over several years.
