“The team was incredibly friendly and fun from the get-go which immediately put young people at ease… It was fun and creative… a great opportunity for young people (and adults!) to understand and reflect on their strengths, learn how to work with others, and… express themselves better too.”
Ada, Unfold Programme Manager
“It has encouraged me to make a short film without worrying about it having to be perfect and sometimes just having a small idea and letting your imagination run wild can lead to something quality… it reignited my passion for film.”

Wac Arts Young Makers Filmmaking & Podcasting Programme
14 – 18 August 2023
We were delighted to welcome 22 Young Makers aged 12 to 23 to Wac Arts this Summer to explore their creativity around Filmmaking and Podcasting. They worked with industry experts Mia Zur-Szpiro and Tomisin Adepeju to produce, shoot, record and distribute a collection of original short films and podcasts.
Unfold and 2-3 Degrees
Earlier this year, our team visited Unfold, a charity supporting families and young people in Westminster, providing befriending services, sports activities and support to families at risk of homelessness. She delivered Drama workshops for 30 young people, focusing on identity and empowerment.
Following the session at Unfold, the Wac Arts Outreach team also delivered a drop-in session at 2-3 Degrees in collaboration with Unfold. We had a brilliant time facilitation for a fantastic group of 15–18-year-olds, many of whom were asylum seekers with English as an additional language. The workshop was Drama-focused to support the participants’ confidence and communication skills.
