Alongside an exciting performance programme, Katumba provide one-off drumming workshops and educational projects to raise the aspirations and ambitions of young people, adults and educators around the country. Our diverse team of teachers and professional musicians are highly skilled and have led activities in schools, community centres and many other organisations across the UK and worldwide. Not only are our drumming classes energetic and fun, but also offer a multi-cultural experience full of cross-curricular learning. Languages, geography, maths and science are just some of the subjects our qualified and experienced facilitators delve into, topped off with a huge amount of exhilarating drumming! While most of our workshops are based around percussion, we also teach dance. Groups learn about Brazilian and African rhythm and movement, and combine their new skills to create a fantastic final performance! Through this shared experience, outcomes include teamwork, listening, laughter, empathy, solidarity and a wealth of achievement for everyone involved.

Collective Encounters Youth Theatre (CE:YT) uses drama and other art forms, like music and spoken word, to explore and take action on the issues that matter most to young people. We meet every Tuesday evening (during term time) on Zoom, 6pm-8pm, and are open to anyone aged 14-18. Until the Summer holidays we are working on a series of mini-modules, building skills and material for a new live/online show in the Autumn. Modules will develop skills such as creative writing and video editing, and explore current issues such as racial justice and climate change. Check our website for details on the latest module. New members are welcome to join at any time. To join, email ben@collective-encounters.org.uk and let us know if you have any access requirements.
