We did it
On 23rd December 2013 we successfully raised £1,345 with 16 supporters in 42 days

Travelling Light runs Bristol's friendliest Youth Theatre, at which we create a safe and welcoming space where young people feel a sense of belonging and have a platform to hear and be heard. It comprises regular term-time after-school drama workshops for 5-19 year olds where they learn creative and interpersonal skills, make new friends and work with inspiring adults. Currently we reach almost 60 young people a week, and each term we give the Youth Theatre a specific theme to explore, and a specific arts approach within which to develop skills. Each term ends with an informal sharing of achievements.

We are located in Lawrence Hill, the most deprived ward in Bristol and among the 5% most deprived in England. The majority of our participants live in the area, which is among the 1% most deprived. We aim to help young people realise their potential to succeed and achieve. We aspire to serve our community as a unique centre of learning for young people from diverse cultural and social backgrounds. We want to enable young people to make a positive difference to the world and be recognised for their achievements.

We need to raise just £2,500 to keep the Youth Theatre running past January 2014 and want to raise half of that through crowd funding.  Every little helps.
