Kazzum Arts is a charitable arts organisation based in East London, providing opportunities for children and young people to explore their creativity at times in their lives when they are most in need of support. With over 30 years of experience working with young people in hospitals, refugee settings, pupil referral units and mainstream schools, we have become a leading organisation in arts based approaches which support young people through adverse experiences, mental ill-health and social exclusion.
We believe that creativity is a human right, access to which is never more important than in childhood and young adulthood which is why we work hard to remove the barriers that prevent young people’s creative engagement.
We facilitate innovative, playful and multi-disciplinary projects which encourage social and reflective skills, enabling young people to foster positive relationships and experience an increased sense of wellbeing. Our projects lay the developmental and social groundwork for happier, healthier futures and are informed by an understanding of adverse childhood experiences and their impact upon child mental health.
