We're all about creating links between people, and about opening up worlds.
We love to play, and since we opened in June 2014 we have collaborated with partners from Higher Education and Universities, children’s charities, history festivals, addiction rehabilitation services, colleges, local authority children’s services, local bands and musicians, local theatre companies and artists, programmers, designers, chefs and mixologists.
The site is mainly programmed by the children and young people we work with – they act either as artists, as curators, or as programmers and producers of work. In order to do this work, Effervescent‘s team work with groups and individuals over intensive periods which last weeks or months, to develop their knowledge, criticality and confidence to make choices and work with professionals. In this way, we make sure that the material we present here is exciting, authentic, meaningful and powerful; plus we help to develop a who generation of skilful, wonderful new practitioners.
