Abstract

This study funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council took place in six community-based organisations in four contrasting localities in different geographical areas. A total of 258 interviews were conducted with168 young people aged between 16 and 25 years old who were participating in a range of different art forms including drama, music production, dance and slam poetry. Of these young people, 96 were young men and 72 young women, 50% were White British, 25% Black African, Black British and Black Caribbean, 14% Dual Heritage, and other young people were Asian, South American, and Middle Eastern. Participation in the research was voluntary and all young people received vouchers.
Tutors, managers and policy makers in the local areas and some national organisations were interviewed to gain a better understanding of the activities provided and how policies were working in practice.
