About Youth Arts & Participation

Hoxton Hall’s mission is to address inequality of opportunity for children and young people in the arts through engaging the diverse Hoxton communities and wider public with the performing arts through delivering creative activities that are accessible, fun and a high-quality experience for participants.

Hoxton Hall participation department has a substantial buy-in and trust from beneficiaries and the spread of participation work continues to evolve. Working with a range of young people. Hoxton Hall’s long history in the area is a key strength of the organization and this strategy aims to build on this by expanding the offer and developing the work of the department more closely to match the ambition of the professional artistic program.

The department strives to train artist of the future with a professional development program for its older participants. Allowing new opportunities that will be developed for careers in all art fields including technical theatre, being housed in Hoxton Hall allows for exposure to the professional world and beyond.

The current participants are 80% BAME and largely local. A key part of the strategy of widening the offer is to create a bridge from participation to emerging artist and beyond is the long-term aim. This objective complements the key benefits of the participatory work, which is engaged with building confidence, increasing social agency, progression routes to employment outside the arts and further education. Hoxton Hall’s location in an area of rapid gentrification is focused on breaking down barriers and enabling participants greater access to the benefits of the growth in the area.
