‘Re-Shuffle’ provides pathways into the creative industries for young people in challenging circumstances. Participants experience the creative industries in professional environments, working alongside professional artists, practitioners and local arts organisation staff. The programme delivers workshops in Music & Music Production, Film Making, Theatre & Drama and Visual Art & Design.
Through our links with a range of local arts organisations we also provide tours and experience in:
- Light and sound operation
- Stage management
- Sales and marketing
- Business development
- Front of house
- Arts administration
As part of the programme, the participants of Re-Shuffle also get the opportunity to produce a live multimedia performance that explore issues that impact young peoples’ lives. This performance is presented to an invited audience at a local cultural venue.
Re-Shuffle is delivered in partnership with Love Music Trust.
“Participants have developed skills and found pathways into the creative sector.”

“It’s got me out my bedroom and making music with other people.”
“The inspirational collaboration between these two remarkable artists has helped many young people to explore some of life’s challenging moments with confidence.”

“It was possibly the best thing we have staged at Safety Central, in no small part to the artists’ understanding of the topics we cover and their enthusiasm and talent in bringing out the best in people.”
Mark Shone, Safety Central
“It’s given me confidence and social skills that I didn’t have before.”
“I never thought I could write my own songs, and then perform them to other people!”
“The Re-Shuffle project has had a profound impact on our young people. As a result of this project and the social skills they develop, they find it less challenging to collaborate with others and work as a team.”
