Social Action Youth Project

Here's a video about a pilot project that was delivered in Bristol, where young people were supported to make positive changes to areas of their communities that they felt needed up lifting. Over 1000 young people across Bristol and South Gloucestershire took part.

My job was to deliver a series of Graffiti Art Workshops, where I would teach young people some particular creative techniques of design, composition and how to use spray paint. This group then went on to teach another group of young people the skills that they had learnt. The benifits of this kind of peer mentoring is that the young people can the chance to be both the learner and the teacher in a short space of time.

We worked in Cotham High School, Merchants Academy and the Young Peoples Centre in Hartcliffe. Big up to all the young people who took part, and to the Young Bristol Team for organising the Graffiti Art Project. 2014-15.
