Scene & Heard is a unique mentoring project that partners the inner-city children of Somers Town, London with volunteer theatre professionals, providing each child who participates with quality one-on-one adult attention and an experience of personal success through the process of writing and performing plays.

Set up in 1999 Scene & Heard is run by founder members Sophie Boyack and Kate Coleman. It is based on the American organisation The 52nd Street Project, which has been successfully working with economically disadvantaged children in New York for 20 years and with whom Co-Artistic Director, Kate Coleman worked during 1998. Scene & Heard currently runs five courses annually for children aged 9 to 14.
