What you’ll do

Develop ways to get your voice heard on issues such as clean air and the environment. Artist Love Ssega presents a workshop for young people to use arts, music, imagery and their voice in positive campaigning for better air around us with examples from his own campaigns and music videos.

This workshop is for young people aged 14 to 19 years.

Any time that you want to find a space away from the activities, you can come to the Chill-Out Room next to the workshop studio to lie down or relax. There will be low lighting, comfortable seating, cushions and mats throughout the room. Make use of ear defenders, earplugs, board games and materials with different textures.
