Inspired Youth ‘Chance’ project gets some legs
The CHANCE project, by Inspired Youth, has been gaining momentum and has seen some great development and collaboration between several Phoenix tenants.
The Chance Project
We all take chances, we all have to make choices and ultimately we face the concequences of our decisions. But in a world where its hard to know who to trust, when it comes down to the choices you make, can you trust yourself? Chance is a series of audio dramas driven by the voices, opinions and experiences of young people. The stories revolve around strong characters who are all faced with life changing decisions. The project is a revoltion in story telling, involving young people from a range of backgrounds and with diverse experiences in life. The idea is to engage young people in debate, putting them at the heart of the discussion. It looks to address and raise awareness of the most prevalent social issues facing young people in Britain today and creates a safe arena for the exploration of the issues. Chance is a youth driven project working alongside Inspired Youth and aims to engage, challenge, inform and inspire a youth audience driving on-going debate. Inspired Youth’s ‘Bright Sparks’ will power the project from concept to design and delivery. They are a group of talented young people drawn from a range of creative projects delivered by Inspired Youth over the past five years. They will draw on their own experiences of prevalent social issues and embark on a richly creative Research and Development process involving further groups of young people working in partnership a number of key community charities.
