Thomas Lister was formed in 2002 by experienced surveyors Chris Thomas and Rachel Lister who each have more than 20 years experience in property development.

These young people do not currently access the arts in other parts of the city at all. The aim of this programme was to bring the arts to them and their communities and up-skill those working with them to be able to offer the arts on an on-going basis embedded within Endeavour’s curriculum today. Focussing mainly on the creative visual arts, film, music and circus-based activities young people wiere offered the opportunity to engage in drama, dance and spoken word across the initiative project.
