This October half term, young people from Dorset will come together for arts workshops and thought-provoking discussions that will lead to positive action for social change.
Together with Bridport Youth Centre, lunch will be provided young people from Bridport and the surrounding area who don’t have access to school meals during half term.
Over the course of the programme, young people will share their films in Bridport’s first youth-led short film festival. We’ll be joined by artists, activists and young people from across the UK to address issues of social justice, transforming our communities to become more inclusive and equal.
Since our first residency in Bridport in 2012, we've learned that one of the most effective ways to bring about positive changes in our community is through providing the space to meet others, create together, apply critical thinking and discover new possibilities/challenges/opportunities.
We are a group of young activists, artists and volunteers of all ages who organise opportunities for all young people regardless of their background and ability. In 2015 we won the European Youth Prize and the 2017 Charlemagne Youth Prize (UK) for our joint approach in bringing young people together. The result is young people’s personal transformation through arts and culture, our most powerful tools for change.
We are bombarded by information, even if we have stopped realising, but there are very few public spaces available for genuine conversation. We’d like to change that, and to continue a series of conversations we’ve been having across Dorset about the role of young people and artists in difficult times.
