'The talk'

Black History Month has begun, but we, like many agree, that this should be a 12 month focus. Black History is British History and should take its place at the heart of our curriculum.

This November we are proud to be launching 'The Talk', a short film that has been produced as a resource for teachers and educational leaders. The film has been created to shine a light on the unconscious bias within our education system and furthermore highlight the institutional racism that in some cases still exists within schools today.

It is time 'The Talk' was heard and seen beyond the four walls it sadly exists.

FUNDING LIFELINE

We are delighted to announce that we have been awarded funding as part of the Cultural Recovery Fund.

For a small CIC like NGYT this is life changing. Without the support from the DCMS, HM Treasury and Arts Council England, it is in no way an exaggeration to say, we would not have been able to continue next half term.

Thank you to everyone who champions our young people, thank you to the Luton artists and creatives who stand alongside us, thank you to our amazing families and most of all thank you to the young people who continue to lead and create the NGYT story.

The thought of not being able to do the job we love and serve our amazing community and young people would be devastating.

For the last 8 years we have been hugely inspired and humbled by the stories and generosity of our town. It has been an honour to collaborate and share these diverse voices creatively. Now, with renewed optimism we can look forward to our journey together.

We know there is so much more work to be done but we are ready for the challenge ahead. 

Thank you for all your love and continued support.

David & Laura (Co-Artistic Directors & Founders)
