The project is an attempt to engage young people in planning, preparing, and delivering three events based on their own, and other young peoples’ known passions. So far 20 young people have been recruited to volunteer and undertake training in all aspects of project planning and delivery with the end of producing and hosting three large scale urban art events for their peers.
