Based on Union Street in Oldham, we provide a range of training, mentoring and professional arts projects to develop creative talent, learn music and media skills, build confidence in a working environment and find routes into employment.
One of our founding principles is to make young people the centre of our organsiation. Wherever possible, those accessing our projects and programmes are encouraged to develop their leadership skills and experience. Their views and issues inform everything from project delivery to group decision making and steering the ongoing development of the charity.
Square 1 does much more than teach music skills, it builds hopes and aspirations and helps young people on the road to success.
