We had a great turnout for last night’s Young People’s Festival of Ideas event on Activism at Arnolfini. The audience were hugely supportive and our brilliant line up included:
Miles Chambers, Bristol’s very own poet laureate
Jasmine Ketibuah-Foley from Ujima’s Green & Black programme
Adibah Iqbal sharing personal stories
Ollie Turnbull from the People’s Assembly Bristol
Liz Crow, artist-activist, Roaring Girl Productions
Nathan Herat, comedian
Megan Baker from Safe Space
Chanté Joseph from Bristol is the New Black
Our speakers covered everything from how to plan a protest to how art be used as activism; how to motivate people to engage to how to turn negative experiences into positive actions.
Check out our hashtag on Twitter to see more about the event: #ypfoi and keep checking our website for more photos and the audio, which we’ll be uploading soon.
Young People’s Festival of Ideas is a Rising partnership with Bristol Festival of Ideas and Arnolfini.
