Community-based performing arts and young people’s transitions into adulthood: developing policies for young people
Sampson, Alice 2011. Community-based performing arts and young people’s transitions into adulthood: developing policies for young people. University of East London, Centre for Institutional Studies.
This paper draws on the experiences of young people aged 16 to 25 years who participated in performing arts programmes run by community-based organisations. It argues that policies which have prioritised an instrumentalist position and conceptualises performing arts as a route to further education, training and employment has served to undermine supporting community organisations in ways that are most valued by, and of benefit to, young people during their „transitionary‟ years.
