Are you passionate about youth arts and drama and engaging young people from diverse backgrounds? Are you committed to making sure all young people are able to participate regardless of the particular barriers they may face?

Mess Up The Mess have been working with the hardest to reach young people in our communities since 2007. We aspire for our work to be about ‘Nurturing imaginations, Daring performance and Changing lives’.
