Our Vision:

 

To work towards a vision that brings the passion and creativity of young people into one integrated solution. We work to address the significant problem of the lack of resources and opportunities for inner city youth. 

 

Our Mission Statement: 

 

Bigga Fish strives to continuously provide high-quality performance and work opportunities to young creatives through events, workshops, training and development. We have had 15 years of delivering dynamic opportunities to young people.

 

We now work in 4 cities including London, Liverpool, Manchester and Birmingham. Each city has their own street team with their lead being a well-trained Street Team Captain. We have previously worked in 8 cities, engaging over 450 young people through the Street Team. 

 

We aim to nurture our Street Teams through the development of their transferable life-long skills to then take on into their chosen career.

 

As well as our ever-growing Street Team, we also deliver events to showcase new musical talent. We have put on over 150 events and engaged with over 408,866 young people. We have given performance opportunities to 1,084 people through artist engagement and development. Our 70 grass roots and community partners have helped with over 400 hours of engagement with young people. Events such as our Urban Classic Prom run by Bigga Fish, BBC and Serious has received a broadcasting figure of over 13 million in the past year.

We believe that Bigga Fish is a good opportunity for young people.

HOPE not hate - goal

HOPE not hate exists to provide a positive antidote to the politics of hate. We combine first class research with community organising & grassroots actions to defeat hate groups at elections and to build community resilience against extremism.

Hate is often the consequence of a loss of hope and a political articulation of despair, but given an alternative, especially one that understands and addresses their anger, most people will choose HOPE over hate. Their job is to expose and undermine groups that preach hate, intolerance and division whilst uniting communities around what they have in common.

Building a society that celebrates rather than scapegoats our differences.

Kemoy and KYSO was invited to come along and do a few performances which they done and everyone was thrilled with the talent the youths have, they praised them after their performances. 

Kemoy said "We don't often get involved in enough campaigns that are happening and this event inspired the group to be more active in these good campaigns across the world." R.I.P Jo Cox.

29th October 2015 - Kemoy and KYSO team perform at Halloween event in Moston. 

On this date, we had a booking at a residential home in Moston with KYSO dancers and family, which they performed for the elderly and young people and smashed it. We got three bookings from it, one for wedding, one to come back and perform for the home and another one for us to get involved in a project. I am very proud to have such an amazing team who always go above and beyond in everything we do.

Together everybody achieves more.
