My London is a two year project to engage young people in social action; developing awareness of social issues, enabling young people to investigate and express ideas about these issues through dance, and act to make change. The project builds young people’s agency, voice and power to positively impact participants’ well-being.
Trinity Laban is one of five organisations in the My London: Enabling Youth Social Action Greenwich and Lewisham Partnership. We are working in partnership with METRO Charity, Charlton Athletic Community Trust, Tramshed, and Lewisham Youth Theatre. Young people working with each organisation come together to plan and lead joint social action activities over a two year period through a Youth Steering Group, alongside activities within each organisation.
Trinity Laban’s project within the partnership explores how dance can enable young people to engage in social action.
Initially Trinity Laban is working with young people studying at Thomas Tallis Secondary School. There are opportunities for other young people to participate through regular Youth Summit events. This page will be regularly updated with information, Youth Summits and open activities.
