At this moment there are not enough opportunities for a young person living in Small Heath, Spark Hill, Spark brook, Tyseley, Yardley, Aston and Lozells to access arts outside their School/college activities. Purbanat has created arts projects to engage targeted young people and offers creative arts sessions on every Saturday and Sunday. These young people are mainly from Bangladeshi, Asian, Somalian Czech and Slovak, Polish and other minority groups living in said areas where there are multiple deprivation that reflects on ‘Analysis of the 2019 Indices of Deprivation’ and very diverse areas than any other areas of the city according to all census.

These targeted young people are not often encouraged to access arts including performing arts due to misinterpretation of ‘Arts’ and imaginary boundary/taboo because of assumed religious/cultural practice. Our activism includes outreach work to spell the ‘arts activities’ to ‘creative activities’ that support positive mental health and wellbeing.

Our office and rehearsal place became a registered ‘’Arts Award Centre’’ in this area and It is our mission to make this centre as a hub for Next Generation Arts Leaders to make a social change.
