About MTA:
Join an exciting and expanding youth performing arts charity as a member of our Board of Trustees. MTA uses the transformative power of the performing arts to enrich and enhance young people’s lives in Lewisham.

MTA believe in the transformative power of the performing arts, and its ability to positively impact the lives of the children and young people.
