“Attending Wac Arts every Sunday as a teenager transformed my life. I cannot overstate the continuing importance of having such institutions accessible to young people in London”
Sam Beste- Wac Arts alumnus and professional musician
In 1978 Camden struggled to provide local young people with adequate and affordable training in the performing arts and media. With this in mind Celia Greenwood, Teresa Noble and Ed Berman set up Wac Arts, with 12 students on a Sunday. Now we have approx 1000 young people benefiting from our performing arts and media training every year!
