Youth Project with the kids of Kensal House Estate
Team Spirit is the story of council estate teenagers who pull together as a team to overcome the difficulties in our lives. All the young people involved are against the looting and violence on the streets.
Kids from Kensal House put on their show
All the young people involved have been working hard all Summer at their base in the modernist estate of Kensal House, Ladbroke Grove. They are looking forward to touring the show to the West London council estates that inspired it.
For all the depravity of recent events, this project promises to demonstrate the unifying power of sport and community theatre. The young people have thrived on the opportunity to create something positive, whether through writing, acting or producing. They have learned a lot from each other, sharing knowledge of each others’ cultures and of their various neighbourhoods.
The gang culture, gun and knife crime that blights urban teenagers has been well publicised and is now storming the headlines. The problems have eclipsed any mention of solutions – yet in its small way, Team Spirit offers hope.
