Groundbreakers is led by Studio 3 Arts, and funded by the Young Londoners’ Fund, as part of a borough-wide youth engagement initiative led by Barking and Dagenham Council, with Studio 3 Arts, Spark2Life and Boxup Crime.
The aim of the programme is simple – to empower and grow the leadership potential of local young people. The programme will create leaders that will contribute to the social, economic and cultural wellbeing of the community.
