Often, conversations around youth leadership understandably focus on the benefit this has for young people. But, behind each of the success stories is a story less often told of the individual adults who have enabled the young people’s success.
The Black Lives Matter movement asks many of the same questions posed as part of Hope Streets: What stories from our past are preserved, and which are hidden away? What questions do we need to ask and what truths do we need to learn about the names memorialised in statues and street names?
Produced by Blaze, this entirely young people powered programme celebrates creativity, heritage and diversity. The Festival of Hope is a pioneering festival that places young people at the heart of design, making, programming and production.
