Studio 3 Arts

Celebrating 30 years of socially-engaged, co-created art

Big Deal Open Access

Big Deal is Studio 3 Arts’ award-winning, flagship programme for young people. We use theatre, dance, music production, filmmaking, and set design to enable young people to create professional-standard performances that articulate their experiences, stories and hopes for the future. We never compromise on artistic quality in our work with children and young people.

Big Deal prioritises professional development for young emerging artists.  Industry-standard training is coupled with networking events, CV-writing, audition technique and showreel development. Our young people have gone on to study performance at creative industry training at Urdang, London Studio Centre, Laban, Middlesex University, Anglia Ruskin University, Brunel University and Brit School.  Some of our alumni now have careers as A and R professionals, dancers/choreographers, pop musicians, professionals actors, poets, community engagement artists and arts managers.

The artistic delivery of the project is combined with a proactive youth agenda which encourages young people to engage with the issues relevant to them including antisocial behaviour; substance misuse; gang culture; knife and gun crime; sexual health and teen pregnancy; careers, and the future.

We’re always happy for new young people to join Big Deal.  If you’d like to come and try us out, you can sign up for more information here.
