Since its inception in 1996 Phakama has pioneered a process for creating theatre that transcends age, experience and background. Its practice of cultural exchange unites communities across difference and diversity through trailblazing, non-hierarchical methods.

Rise Up is an opportunity for Young Creative to work with professional artists, and producers to learn the skills needed to lead a group of young people to plan and produce a public show at Rich Mix.
