Where strength and dignity unite, empowering the truth within…
Thirtyone2526 is an initiative conceptualised by Nathalie to create and redefine what it is to be fully alive, authentic and human ‘kind’.
Through the medium of film we tell stories, shift paradigms, to exist above and beyond the limited expectations and labels society places upon us. We build up positive identity where others have dismissed it and by getting behind our vision, you can be assured that you will be supporting the core mission of Thirtyone2526; to awaken strength, dignity and fearless empowerment in the lives of the young people we work with …
Inside Out Our first project - currently in production - has been funded by the Mayor of London and the Young Londoners Fund. Inspired by an experience Nathalie had as a 19 year old actress, 'Inside Out' is a film project created with and written by young men currently serving time in an HMP YOI (Young Offenders Institution) and produced alongside young people living in London . Throughout the production, the company of young people are mentored by working professionals in the Industry. The project has garnered the interest and support of Screen writer Ronan Bennett (Top Boy, Public Enemies) and Film Director, Producer Don Boyd (Scum) and is supported by Applecart Arts.
