Speak Up is a new secondary school programme that aims to inspire a movement of young
people, who want to speak up about the issues that matter to them – in their schools, their
communities and nationally. Young people will work collaboratively with their teachers,
artists, local arts organisations and the National Theatre to make local artworks and creative
This innovative programme has been developed with through the National Theatre’s
Theatre Nation Partnerships (TNP) network, for young people who have been most affected
by the pandemic and whose voices are not always heard. Speak Up takes place in areas of
low arts engagement where there is an inequality of access to opportunities for young
people. The TNP network includes Cast in Doncaster, The Lowry in Salford, Queen’s Theatre
Hornchurch, Sunderland Empire and Sunderland Culture, Theatre Royal Wakefield, and the
Wolverhampton Grand Theatre.
Speak Up is a co-created programme where young people, teachers and artists are equal
partners. Young people will be supported and nurtured to become the leaders of the future,
putting them at the heart of the creative process and decision making. Teachers will
become opportunity seekers and actively find ways that Speak Up can shape the culture of
their school. Artists will collaboratively and equitably make work without any
predetermined outcomes. Arts organisations will use this programme to meaningfully shape
how those with less power can have genuine agency within their organisations.
Over three years, Speak Up will engage with 140,000 young people in 55 selected secondary
schools nationwide. Together, we will inspire each other to find new ways to think, see and
bring about change individually and in the world.
