The Youth Will be Televised campaign returns for its second instalment – Season 2.  After an outstanding year of several achievements in we felt that so much more still needs to be done to help shine a light on the brilliant things that our youth are capable of.  In our first instalment, we showed the incredible talent of so many young creatives, entrepreneurs, and innovators. 

Negative stereotypes and media attention has had a reputation of creating both a damaging and false representation of the younger generation. These preconceptions will be broken down through our various projects throughout the year. These ventures will include; masterclasses in a wide range of areas, industry nights to give opportunities for aspiring young people to communicate with role models in their field, discussions to tackle issues facing our youth today and many more throughout 2018. 

Creating opportunities for those who are typically overlooked means so much to us and by joining us as a partner YOU could enable us to accomplish these great things. Change happens with a united effort and you could take us one step closer to changing the world.

We hardly create awareness about homelessness, fraud, identity ,bullying amongst others.

My runway group x Roundtable 

 In our modern world it is easy to lose sight of individual creativity. As adults we are absorbed in to a world where day to day reality takes precedent and imagination is pushed back as child’s play. We quickly become confined by the restrictions of our knowledge and the ‘can’ of our youthful imagination becomes ‘couldn’t or ‘can’t’’. Imagine what we could achieve in our adult lives if we changed our thinking and started to believe that anything is possible?  By changing our thinking we can tap into a bottomless resource that could not only help reshape ourselves but also the world in which we live and work. Creativity and storytelling across generations has formed cultures and allowed our ancestors to teach life lessons and share experiences. These interactions have shaped minds, developed values and provided solution based forward thinking.     We are supporting RoundTable  with participants as they guide attendants through an imagination journey, unlocking the creativity which was boxed up after childhood. The sessions are structured to help reconnect with imagination, to eliminate fears and self-limiting beliefs and rediscover the power of the imagination journey.
