Changemakers and Shakers!
What makes a creative changemaker? How do their journeys begin? In January 2020 we took four artists to work with young people over 10 weeks in their safe spaces from Positive Youth Foundation and Creative Optimistic visions, to creatively explore the provocation
“What does a young person need from their city to feel safe?’
For young people, this program has been a journey of creative exploration, of their city, of their story and of their communities. They give us a real insight into what safety looks and feels like for them, the challenges they face from knife crime to mental health and their visions of the future.
Over 10 weeks, the young people went on a journey of creative transformation, from first experiences of writing poetry, rap, and choreography, and visual art to using their creative platforms to share their stories and desires of becoming creative role models in their communities.
Welcome to Changemakers and shakers.
Thank you to the Rotary Club!
