Youth Starter - 'What even is Youth anyways?!'
'Youth' - its a term we all use, something the world loves to call us and yet how much do we really understand about this identity? - Join us in the workshop to dive into Youth exploring what it means, why it matters and if it is something we want to embrace or not!
Time & Location
15 May 2020, 15:00 – 17:00
About the Event
So you're interested in our workshop? Great - let me explain a little more about it!
From the youth climate strikers to the revolutionary youth of the Arab Spring, the word 'youth' is ever present when young people rise up and demand change - or when we're getting drunk and skateboarding... - generally when young people start 'misbehaving' then out comes the label of youth. But why? It's a title some of us embrace and others distance themselves from - but its not something we ever really talk about.
It would be crazy for a women's group to not talk about what it meant to hold that identity - or for a group of black activists to not talk about the social ideas of blackness - these concepts are integral to why they organise as they do and how they build their group identities.
At Radical Restart we believe in the power of youth, its kind of our thing, and as we welcome other young people into the project we want to talk about what this really means - about why we believe in youth and what that means for our activism - this session is our invitation to start these conversations.
It's a dialogue based session so we won't be telling you what we think but building ideas together, so the more ideas the better - so what are you waiting for? Head up top, hit the RSVP button and we'll see you there!
