Soar Creative Careers Programme

Do you work with young people aged between 13–16 years who like drama, dance, music, visual arts, film making, gaming, making stuff or promoting events?

Would they like to experience what it’s like to work in the creative and cultural sector?

Would they like to find out more about what happens inside a theatre and the different types of creative jobs you can do?

During the months of June, July, and August we are opening our doors to young people aged 13–16 years to have a cultural experience and get a sneak preview of what happens here, before we open to the public in the autumn.

Join us this summer as we host our Soar Creative Careers programme of onsite and online activities, with Brixton House staff members and artists from the world of theatre, music, film, dance, and circus. Take part in the Brixton House building site tour, join us on a Creative Careers speed dating session or do a mini workshop with one of our Associate Artists.
