The Show Crib
The Crib helps children and young people overcome complex challenges, empowering them to aim for their highest potential, become active members of their communities and be agents of positive social change.
Over 20 years, 1,000 children and young people have directly benefited from the Crib’s holistic interventions. Each year 1,500 young people actively participate in the Crib’s grass roots community engagement and outreach activities, and audiences of 4,000 attend the Crib’s performances and events.
