Empowering young people through creativity

Empowering young people through creativity

An introduction

The heart of Mixit is our Saturday afternoon sessions, bringing together a diverse group of young people to mix, create and express themselves. Running from 2pm to 4.30pm, it’s an open space where anyone is welcome. We usually have 10-15 participants and a mix of regulars and newcomers, led by 2-3 Mixit leaders and guest artists. These Saturday sessions are commitment-free. Participation is fluid and our young people come along whenever they can. One thing we guarantee is that every Saturday during the school term, Mixit is here for them.
