There are so many ways you can get involved with  20 Stories High, whether you live in Liverpool or further away. We have a wide range of workshops, regular groups and digital discussions and we’d love to hear from you and collaborate with you!

We recruit all of our groups by asking young people to attend an open workshop or through outreach workshops we deliver as part of our programme.

This is our original group for young people aged 14-21 who meet in Liverpool. We make plays that mash up dance, spoken word, music, song, street dance and even puppetry!
