About us Discover more

Aspiration Creation Elevation empower disadvantaged young people through projects & programmes that offer Arts Activities, Role-Model Guidance & Inspirational Experiences. ACE look beyond the surface of what today's youth face, realising that there is a systematic cycle to which many young people fall into, to no fault of their own. This is a cycle of inequality, low aspirations and negativity, which will ultimately have damaging affects on preceding generations. We feel the common ground of art has been the perfect platform to guide, educate and inspire young people to take positive paths in life. We understand that overturning such a deep-rooted problem will take time, commitment and resources beyond our own; but we feel even the smallest positive action can grow into methods of significant change and inspiration. We aim to see negativity overturned through art.

Our vision

A world of shared responsibilities where people have purpose, place and the right to a healthy and happy life.

Our mission

Creating opportunities that allow young people to learn the skills and build the confidence to tackle barriers preventing them from fulfilling their potential in life.

What we offer Sessions and services

We offer young people 3 types of services and 4 different open access sessions.
Pushing Talent and Positive Paths are our targeted sessions aimed at maturing youngsters with exceptional abilities and supporting youths who are facing adverse challenges. We believe that everyone can achieve, that’s why we provide unique mentoring sessions for young people, helping them to realise their potential. We set achievable goals in a safe, fun and friendly environment that supports young people to be creative and expressive. Each programme is designed to meet the specific needs of the individual. A young person must be referred to access this provision.

More than music

We believe the best growth happens when working with freedom. Our weekly drop-in sessions allow youths to engage with us in the best way that suits them. This level of provision can often act as the gateway for young people to further their interests in positive activities and progression routes. These sessions will also be propped-up by weekly fun & educational trips during school holidays. Just turn up and get stuck in!
