Youth Get Scary + Food!
1st November 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmFREE
“Adultism is ‘the power adults have over children. More narrowly, adultism is defined as ‘prejudice and accompanying systematic discrimination against young people.'”
GENTLE/RADICAL invite all young people to a Halloween night of food, short films and discussion for and about young people. We want to start a conversation about what young people want to see happening in our city.
How do we make spaces for you as young people?
How does our culture reflect and support you?
How can your voices be heard, how can adults listen?
This event is a chance for young people, and those who work with you, to get together and discuss what a radical future for young people might look like.
It’s Halloween, so our film shorts are themed around some scary stuff: ghosts, ghouls, but also some of the scary things young people are facing today – from police checks to lack of job opportunities, from body image to Islamophobia…
This get together is about watching short films, sharing food, and discussing your aspirations, frustrations, and how to deal with the challenges of living in a society that doesn’t know how to value your voice
