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.


Here are the latest events, projects and activities imagined, performed and created by our Mixit community.

Here we go again – Embracing the lockdown

Mixit is once more swiftly adapting our platform due to the restrictions of the current lockdown. From Saturday August 21st the afternoon workshops will continue to start at 2pm — BUT online, still with inspiring guest artists leading the fun ‘Characters In A Suitcase’ course. Join us by sending a message on Facebook or Instagram. These on-line sessions will continue until we know more about this lockdown. No need to be sitting at home bored, jump into some on-screen creativity and make your Saturdays more about connecting. See you there!
