Platform is a visionary youth arts hub for 13-19 year olds based in the old Hornsey Road Baths in Islington, London. Trestle is a partner in the CIC organisation running the arts hub, along with Changemakers and Isledon Arts. The vision for Platform is to be youth led and for the first year Trestle is facilitated the arts programme supporting youth led events and cross art form sessions led by professional artists.
Platform houses a 100-seat theatre, a 150-seat performance space, media suites, a recording studio, dance studio and a cafe. Every week young people are able to choose from a variety of workshops, performances and classes and are encouraged to curate and run their own programmes and events.
Platform also offers volunteering opportunities, leadership development and career-based training to support young people with whatever ambitions they might have, plus a range of information and support. This extraordinary venue is also available for hire for corporate and social events.
