    Southbank Centre runs a packed programme of Creative Engagement projects and participatory events to engage and inspire children, families, young people and adults from all backgrounds.


    Activities range from workshops and opportunities for schools and teachers and courses for adults, to special events and opportunities for young people to engage with our festivals and learn about how they are produced.

    We welcome everyone to our site and have a number of community and youth organisations in residence. Find out more today about how to get involved.
