Young voices of Freedom

Our Young Reporters Club gave a new voice and perspective to our media coverage of Freedom Festival 2019. It was brilliant to see the festival through their eyes as they watched the shows, met the artists and interviewed a whole range of people, from members of the public to the volunteer manager!  A new cohort of Young Reporters will be back in 2020 and we're also really happy to be continuing with our Ages of Isolation work, too.  Have a look at what they got up to over on our Instagram stories. 

We’re also keeping to the commitment we made our Teentalitarianism participants, who made their demands during Ask for the for the Moons.  We were so pleased to give the city’s young people a platform to explain exactly how the festival could work for them. As per their requests, we will continue working with them into 2020 to develop a project focussed on mental health.

We hope you’re as excited as we are to see the end result!
