Future Voices is a programme for passionate storytellers who have something to say about the world we live in and are searching for a new way to say it. 

Where we work in King’s College London there are a lot of well-paid people inventing new technologies or discovering scientific knowledge that could change the world forever.

But in this programme, we want to hear your voice – your hopes and fears about the future through storytelling on stage.

You will work with actor Mathijs Swarte and researchers at King’s College London to learn about performance and writing skills to have your voice heard on stage.

The half-term programme is 5 sessions and starts Monday 17th February. It is every day from that date up until Friday 21st February 2020.

Times of workshops 


Monday to Thursday sessions are from 10 am – 1 pm, with a final session and performance on Friday 21st February at 3 pm – 6 pm.

**Young people that attend all 5 workshops will be given a gift voucher of £50 by King’s College London that can be used for future workshops and programmes at Theatre Peckham.

Note for parents and carers 

Utopia Now is a research project based at King’s College London. We want to find out more about about the kind of society that young people want to live in. We are particularly interested in the views of young people living in the neighbourhoods of Lambeth and Southwark. We want to know more about what hopes and fears that young people have for the future, and what they think the role of health and medicine will be in this future society.  

For further information about what is involved in participating in the workshops, please read the full information sheet.
