Pedestrian is a leading arts organisation specialising in music and arts education based in the heart of Leicester’s bustling city centre. Since 1998, we have built a strong track record of delivering high quality creative activity that has seen us complete over 14,000 workshops.
We provide education, training and outreach projects for young people at risk, vulnerable adults and communities in Leicester, Leicestershire and across the Midlands. Our participants are often socially excluded, not in education, employment or training (NEET) or experiencing disadvantage.
Our Alternative Education Provision (AEP) is a core part of our delivery. Pedestrian provides an alternative learning programme for those struggling or have struggled in mainstream education to achieve their goals. Courses are accredited learning opportunities for students in Key Stage 4 (usually 14-16 years old) who are excluded or at risk of exclusion from mainstream schools.
We believe that with the right levels of support and timely intervention everyone can achieve their goals, we call this ‘Pioneering Potential’.
Creativity is a key part of our lives, at Pedestrian we offer the chance for everyone to explore this through music, dance, photography, street art, etc regardless of who they are and where they come from.
