Young people are invited to share their creative work in our cabaret and open mic events

Collective Encounters hosts regular creative events aimed at bringing together different voices from across the community. We welcome youth theatres, youth clubs, and individual young artists to share their work at these events, whether it’s a short sketch, monologue, song, spoken word piece, dance, physical theatre, stand up routine, or something else.

Our cabaret and open mic events often have a theme, but we’re also open to you telling us what the important issues are for you right now. So, if you have something to say and it doesn’t fit with our current theme – get in touch anyway. We’d love to hear from you.

You might have something that is ready to share, or you might like a Collective Encounters artist to give you some support beforehand.
