Using arts activities to explore issue-based work with young people

This workshop will give youth and community workers and some simple arts activities that they can use to explore any issue or discussion topic with young people.

The workshop will cover art, creative writing and drama activities. It will look at ways the arts can be used as a tool for young people’s reflection and self-development and for starting difficult conversations. It will also give attendees a chance to reflect on how they can incorporate more arts into their current practice.
