Amplify – a new magazine series exploring best practice around Youth Voice in creative and cultural learning
Date Created: 29th Apr 2021
May will see the launch of a new online digital magazine series highlighting elements of best practice around fostering ‘children and young people’s voice’, in the context of creative and cultural learning.
Launched collectively by Arts Council England’s National Bridge Network and aimed at professionals working in the cultural, education and youth sectors, this series will showcase examples of adult-led, children and young people-informed work, as well as children and young people initiated work.
The Bridge network’s collective goal is to demonstrate the range of conditions that enable young people to develop their voice in different contexts e.g. within the cultural sector, youth sector, education sector and local communities. Episodes will reflect on the impact of Covid-19 in terms of how it has affected young people and how they have adapted to using different platforms to get their voices heard. The initiative aims to encourage greater interest in, and uptake of, leading practice around encouraging Children and young people’s voice and young people’s leadership in a range of settings.
Each episode will be published biweekly, initially for 3 months, and will follow themes covering, Wellbeing, Young Creatives, Child-led Learning, Board Participation, Changemakers and Ambassadors.
The aim of this digital series is to enable viewers who are well practiced in this work as well as those just starting out, to find meaningful and useful information related to questions such as:
- How is youth voice work managed?
- What impact does youth voice activity have on both the organisation and the young people participating?
- How do you fund youth voice activity?
You will find links to the latest episodes on the Amplify website (coming soon) or in the news section of our website. The first episode is focused on wellbeing and will launch in May.
