After the success of ‘Beyond Labels: extraordinary women doing extraordinary things’, we made the bold and exciting decision to launch a boys project titled, Beyond Labels; In young men’s shoes. The project gave young men the platform to use creativity as a vehicle for self-expression and self-exploration.
Working alongside a range of creative practitioners the boys went on to produce a touring exhibition of film, photography and the spoken word.
‘It’s been an exciting journey for most of the young people. I think it has also been a really empowering journey for each and every one of these young people. I have seen a real difference in the way they interact with each other and the way they interact with us as facilitators.
And just to see them appreciate and grow into that understanding that my voice is important; I absolutely matter. I’m an individual who has something to say.’
