How can we empower young people to transform their cities? What's the role of arts, culture and storytelling to enable young people to change the narrative in their communities?
This session will hear from three innovative projects from across Northern Ireland and Scotland to understand how young people can transform their cities and how we can best support and enable them. Expect a fun, engaging and artistic morning!
UV Arts uses art and graffiti to challenge perceptions of public space and empower young people.
Tell it in Colour provide spaces where people can come together & share their stories across Northern Ireland and through storytelling sessions encourage people to find & raise their voices.
Bad Idea help young people develop their ideas to realise their ambitions and harness creativity through their training, competitions and digital community.
