CPT’s work is also rooted in the Camden community and we are dedicated to delivering high quality arts projects and opportunities to our local residents.

We believe that access to and engagement with high quality arts activity is hugely beneficial to people’s wellbeing and can improve social cohesion. Our community work engages people of all ages and backgrounds including 13-19 years olds attending our youth theatre and refugees living in the area. Our most impactful project to date is Camden Youth Theatre that we launched in partnership with New Diorama in 2016. CYT is the only free to access extra-curricular youth theatre in Camden and as such, offers vital arts engagement for our local young people. Types of community engagement we offer include:

  • free space for local groups to meet
  • Camden Youth Theatre – a weekly workshop for 13-19 year olds
  • Theatre projects developed with local community groups such as Hopscotch and Counterpoint Arts
  • Theatre projects developed with and performed by local school pupils
  • Discount or free tickets to CPT shows
  • Free workshops for schools
  • Programming and promotion of local festivals including Drummond Street Festival
