Empowering young people to find their voices through writing and creative arts

Facebook Posts

Hello!

We hope you are well.

Are you between the ages of 16-30 and from a BAME background?

Are you interested in the voices of the community?

Are you interested in using creative arts & research to give communities a voice?

If you have answered, 'YES', then we have an exciting new project for you and the community!

We are working with The London Mayor’s ‘Citizen Led Engagement Team to deliver a unique community research project that will focus on social inclusion, integration and developing civic leadership in communities that currently do not have a voice in City Hall.

The London Mayor is committed to making the Capital a City for all Londoners, where every community can thrive. He has appointed Deputy Mayor, Matthew Ryder, to make London fairer and more inclusive, and to encourage active citizenship. This will only be possible in collaboration with London’s vast array of communities.

We are therefore looking for 12 young people between 16-30-years-old from BAME backgrounds that would benefit from this unique experience, bearing in mind that the project is flexible and runs for 4 months, February 2018 to May 2018, with a planned a celebratory event to bring together all the inquiry participants to acknowledge their achievements and build on the relationships that are established throughout the project. The event will be an opportunity to share the findings and embed the learning in the GLA’s policies and programmes.

The 12 selected young people will receive supportive training and will be awarded for their research & creativity.
