Being Young

Last week we brought together a few young people plus a number of those who work at the coal face with them in situations ranging from foster care / youth offending / statutory youth clubs / prison and faith and arts based projects.

WHY?

To discuss and explore what a film exploring what it means to be a young person in Britain in the 21st century could look like.

It could be a feature film aimed at a be spoke cinema tour or a multi part web series or even a TV programme or all of those?

It might be aimed at young people themselves or wider culture or again both.

It WILL be made with the creative support of young people though that is for sure!

Themes and issues that emerged were ;

ALIENATION / SEXUALITY / FEAR / RACISM / LACK OF VOICE / POVERTY / DISILLUSIONMENT / CELEBRATION OF CREATIVITY / FUTURE…..

Next steps are to meet lots and lots of YP in different situations to just hear what they have to say.

We aim to make this over the course of 2017/18 with a release around Autumn 2018
