Mini Activists at Impact Hub Birmingham

“It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken adults.” ~ F. Douglas


Are you looking for fun, creative and alternative child friendly activities to do over the summer period? Do you need engaging childcare and workspace?

Look no further, Impact Hub Brum will be hosting a 5 part series of afternoon workshops during the month of August with a focus on activism, community and creativity. Inspired by the revolutionary books “A is for Activist” and “Counting on Community” (beautifully illustrated and written by the talented Innosanto Nagara) we will be facilitating young minds to reflect on their collective values and how these can be exercised through their innate artistry and engineering skills.

Expect plenty of crafting, den building interactive/animated poetry, music and film.

Places are limited for all sessions and must be booked in advance.

Please note; parents/guardians must stay with their child/children throughout the duration of all sessions (and are more than welcome to join in). Alternatively, a Day Pass at a special rate of £10 can be purchased, so you can work while your child is in a session.*


Top of the Vox: Noisy Activism
Date: Thursday 3rd August 2017

Ever just wanted to scream your head off and rant about stuff that annoys you, bothers you or angers you? Express yourself in free flow creativity through animated poetry, song and instruments.

Date: Thursday 10th August 2017
Time: 2:00pm - 5:00pm

In this workshop & discussion we’ll be talking about what protest and activism feels like as a family. Whether it’s an online campaign like Marley Dias’s appeal #1000blackgirlbooks or at a march or protest, activism gives us the opportunity to discuss world events and injustice with our children and helps to shape them into involved, concerned, civic-minded citizens. With a little preparation, there is no reason why children can’t join adults in having their voices heard. This session will be facilitated by Aliyah Hasinah.
