YOUNG COMPANY: PROTESTERS
WANT TO CHANGE YOUR SCHOOL? YOUR CITY? YOUR FUTURE? THE WORLD? JOIN PROTESTERS!
Maybe you’re passionate about the environment. Maybe you want to change the price of Metro tickets. Or you don’t agree with the uniform rules in your school. You might not know what you want to change yet. Protesters will help you find out.
Protesters meet every week, working with different artists to learn about different kinds of protest, from graffiti to poetry, to music, to marching with placards. Over the next few months, you will create your own protest projects as a way of making change in the world.
(Want to) Protest Event
Date: Saturday May 6, 2023
Venue: Northern Stage, Barras Bridge, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 7RH
(Want to) Protest? is a whole day of workshops, films and talks aimed at sharing our collective experiences of social power structures and inequalities, starting a conversation about what can be done about it, and most importantly what YOU want to do about it.
Inspired by our production of Protest, the event has been co-designed by a group of young social activists from our Young Company, working alongside Northern Stage staff. Young Company is for anyone aged 14 – 21 who would like to explore their creativity, use their voice to influence others, make new friends, discover who they are and who they can be.
Join us for some or all of the day, it’s FREE to take part. Food and refreshments will be provided.
(Want to) Protest? is open to all ages. Please note anyone aged 11 or under must be accompanied by an adult.
