Chloe (14) reports on the Redcar event (26th January)

Hey, so i guess i’ll just talk about my experience at the Redcar event since it was the first time i had ever done an event really. Well I’ve got too thank Sara, Johnny & Scott for organizing the whole event because they all did a splendid job on it! So yeah,i had a great time all the activities were fun and to me all the young people opened up about their community which was great. They also had some good ideas of what they wanted to see and do in their community which was great! and i can’t wait for the next events. :P Chloe, 14

What are the Youth Network Events?

They are FREE events happening across the region for young people aged 14-25 years. They are led by members of Sage Gateshead’s Young People’s Action Group. The purpose of the events is to find out more about what young people think about arts and culture where they live. What do they participate in and what would they like to do more of? The events are friendly, fun and creative with games, conversations and art. The opinions of all the young people that attend will be passed on to Bridge North East who will use this valuable information to inform their future work across the region.

And if you would like to develop your confidence and leading skills then how about joining Sage Gateshead’s Young People’s Action Group? We are 14-25 years old and meet on Tuesday evenings, 6-8pm at Sage Gateshead. Sessions are FREE and through the projects we lead we are working towards an Arts Awards accreditation.
