QUACY: Queer Arts Cambridge Youth
We are starting our new project “QUACY” (Queer Arts Cambridge Youth) a weekly theatre based group for young LGBT+ people to come together and engage in a program of positive activities that will help to reduce isolation, improve confidence and self-esteem and improve knowledge and awareness of issues affecting them.
We’ll have a lot of fun together , doing different theatre games, exploring diverse performing techniques, sharing, expressing ourselves and developing our unique play.
Our first session will be on October 5th, and we will meet weekly on Thursdays from 4:30 to 6:30pm
If you would like to join us, or you know somebody who would like to be part of this new exciting project you can contact us!

Camp Camp 2017: ‘Grow Your Glow’
We are very excited to be hosting a summer residential for LGBT+ young people living in Cambridgeshire. The camp will focus on creative expression and health and well-being and will take place in August 2017.
Developing the skills and talents of our young people is central to the face-to-face work we deliver.
One on one, we may work with a young person to enhance their interpersonal skills, talk about budgeting and CVs, physical, mental, and emotional well-being, as well as meeting their support needs.
In our youth groups, we explore activities concerning sexual health, cookery skills and healthy eating, mindfulness, as well as creative crafts and artistic projects. We run particular programs such as Young Pink and Talented where the young people manage their own creative projects, developing skills around leadership, research, communication and time management.
Peer mentoring is a way for young people to volunteer with us and gain useful personal and workplace skills based around our work in schools. They benefit hugely from public speaking, sharing their experiences and educating each other.
