Thank you to everyone who has been part of Shout Out for the Arts so far! Over the last 12 months we have been empowering young people in Warwickshire to shape the future of arts and culture. Here’s what our year looked like!
The year in detail
In 2022/2023, Shout Out for the Arts has:
- Given young people the opportunity to take the lead in shouting for what they want from the arts (and giving them the skills to advocate for it!)
- Recruited and developed children and young people to be leaders and co-producers in the arts
- Given young people the chance to produce events via training workshops in school and then supporting them to deliver their own art activities in their settings
- Trained young young people to work as trustees and placed them in organisations where they can made a difference with their voices
- Created a podcast which had young people at the heart of it
- Ran two creative careers events that explored pathways into the arts
- And much more!
Our new trailer
We’re reaching a transition period in our project – we are looking back at all of these successes and also re-writing a brand new mission for 2023/2024.
To celebrate this important moment, we’re delighted to release today our new trailer which has been created by local videography company Chin Badger Media. This video celebrates just some of the amazing work created by our young people in the last year.
We filmed on location at three Shout Out for the Art projects, asking children and young people – why are the arts important? What does the arts mean to you? What sort of careers would you explore in the arts?
