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 in Liverpool, 6pm – 8.30pm and are open to anyone aged 14 – 18. All sessions are free, there is no joining fee and we can help with bus and train fares if you have difficulty finding the funds to come along. If you have a disability we can also help out with any access needs you may have.

CE:YT aims to create a new production each year and brings in national and international guest artists and companies to deliver masterclasses and residencies. We also:

  • Host regular theatre trips and other arts and cultural events, all free to attend
  • Offer opportunities for young people to gain Arts Awards from Bronze through to Gold
  • Share opportunities for young people to audition for paid acting work and participate in projects with other national and international companies.

Collective Encounters is also an Arts Award Centre and Supporter and an Artsmark Partner.
