OPERA CIRCUS AND TCFT LAUNCHING UNDIVIDED’s WEST DORSET CAMPAIGN

SATURDAY 29TH OCTOBER 2016
Bridport Town Hall

During the two days of discussion, there was a definite move away from the feelings of anger and disappointment which the majority felt towards the outcome of the referendum, to that of productive discussions around what young people want to see from the negotiations.
— Amy Wisenfeld


Following a series of workshops for young people and a wider discussion with members of the local community, the conversations and ideas that have emerged highlight the importance for continued dialogue between people of opposing views and ideologies, as well as greater support for young people to discuss their concerns openly, creatively and safely.

What was the event and who was involved? 

30 young people worked with River and Maleika from Cardboard Citizens  to explore the issues surrounding the EU and the Youth Voice and how the UK government is going to deliver for young people in this country.

From 6.30pm- 8.30pm an audience from across West Dorset (as well as guests from Blackburn) joined the conversation and sharing.

David Powell, Robert Golden, Tina Ellen Lee and Anna Golding along with Amy Wisenfeld and Rory Newbery (two of our Youth Leaders) and were there to facilitate and support River and Malaika in the process. Katy Bird, Jade Skye Middleton and Zoe Cochrane helped to manage the event.

9 young people from SLYNCS, a youth organisation from Blackburn, joined us to add to our discussion and bring together young voices from across the UK. 

 

What is UNDIVIDED?

"We want to ensure that young people get the best possible deal from Government as it negotiates leaving the EU. By building an online database of one million opinions we will deliver a set of demands that represent what young people want from a post-Brexit Britain."
