Autumn Youth Arts Programme

Here at Inspire Youth Arts we deliver a range of music, dance and digital projects and showcasing events. During the ongoing pandemic, we've not been able to do all the events we usually would but we have been able to move many of our regular groups and sessions to online delivery, with a few now offering in-person COVID -safe sessions too. 

Below we've listed all the dance and music sessions we currently have on offer, for more information or to register your interest for one of the sessions please click here to complete the online form. 

We have a Frequently Asked Questions section at the bottom that should answer any queries you have, however please do get in touch if there's anything else we can help with. The team can be contacted on iya@inspireculture.org.uk
