This launch event will explore the PEERS training. This training is a guide for professionals on how to navigate conversations with young people about mental health in a way that is comfortable for everyone.
Delve into the world of storytelling and change making! You will learn how to apply clear techniques to your writing to help influence, empower and encourage others to take action and support your cause.
Annick Météfia and Haneen Hammou, co-producers of the upcoming Shake! Research report will share their learnings from the experience of researching the impact of Shake!’s radical and political youth spaces in the last 10 years.
Young people! Have you ever realised the power of your vote? Your voice? Your activism? Your petition? Your social media post? Every single action counts and gets us all closer to a fairer and more inclusive democratic system.
This event will explore bid writing and fundraising from a young person's perspective. Wellbeing Ambassadors from Newport Mind (volunteers aged 14-25) will share their experiences of co-producing and writing bids.
We'll be giving you our top tips from our experiences, taking you through step-by-step how you can start a social action campaign, and how to build a team so you can make a difference and how Peace First can fund and support your next steps launching a campaign.
In this interactive workshop we will network, share our festival highlights and play some games / icebreakers.
It's a chance for our audiences and friends to talk with us, get to know us, catch up on the festival and ask us any questions!
