About Us

Bounce creates original, thoughtful and adventurous opportunities for people to be creative. 

Our programme entwines the making of great art with opportunities for young people & families to make creativity a part of their every day life. 

Our work is co-created with our participants to ensure creativity remains personal and a sustainable part of their life.

We want to create things that make people happy. We think that understanding your creativity is an act of self care to feeling well. It is also opportunity to spark curiosity and a sense of community. It leads to new ideas, making great things and contributing positively to the world around you.

In a nutshell, we believe good things come from good work.

Our Story


so far

Bounce began around a kitchen table in 2006. We started simply because we believed in the good that comes out of  learning through the arts. For the last decade, we've shaped all we do around that idea. 'What is the good to come out of this?' 

In 10 years we have worked with over 15,000 young people across London. We've created and shared work in community centres, schools, the seaside, hospices, museums, underused theatres and school halls. We’ve partnered with schools, housing associations, older peoples services, extended schools services, hospices, museums, alternative education providers, residents associations, youth clubs, local authorities and commissioners to produce new work. 

We remain at a grassroots level, making work that is reflective of and relevant to the social climate of its time. We've cocreated work with young people that has allowed them to be fairies, ghosts, hormonal teenagers and ww2 veterans amongst other things. Alongside that we've also been a part of their journey as they forge friendships in youth theatres, conceive festivals, reengage in education, go to university, deal with mental health issues or gain first time employment.

This is why we exist.

We care very deeply about the potential happiness that emerges from engaging creatively.
