The Space Project
Creative media programme for young people to come together and express themselves through music, illustration and writing.
Creative Expression programme for young people
With this programme, we aim to engage, inspire and educate young people, particularly young people with behavioural issues and young offenders, to think and make better decisions as well as life choices. The Space Project will be an extra-curricular programme with activities which has been designed to be fun, creative, engaging and interactive.
‘The Space Project’ is a creative media programme which provides a creative platform for young people to come together and express themselves either through music, illustration or writing form. The Space Project aims to:
1) help young people to make better decisions and choices;
2) help create hope and self-belief within young people, and
3) to make young people realise that they are able to achieve the unexpected and overcome challenges.
Throughout the 3 part programme, which will focus on separate themes per session, young people will be required to creatively express themselves via a range of media of their choosing (music, written form and artistic illustrations/paintings), thereby allowing them to tap into their creativity.
Young people will be asked to choose a moment where they made a poor decision or action, allowing them to break down and create a thought process on these moments with the aim of getting them to think of what they could have done differently (decisions/choices) and motivate them to create and work towards achieving their goals in life.
Young people will be able to express themselves creatively in the form of:
Music – Young people can choose to rap, sing or do a spoken word piece after which they will be given the opportunity have their music piece put together and recorded at a recording studio (where possible).
Written piece – This can be in the form of poems, short stories, articles, blogs etc.
Artistic illustration/painting – Paints, canvases, paper, pencils will be provided for those wishing to express themselves in this way.
The written pieces and artistic illustrations from the programme will be digitally printed and published in the next editions of our youth culture and lifestyle magazine called PWR, which has featured many well-known artist, actors, social influencers and creatives known to young people. We take pride in this as the magazine allows young people to create their own content and contribute to the magazine, giving them a sense of achievement and pride in their work.
At the end of the programme, young people will also receive a certificate of completion as an addition to their creative piece being published in our magazine and media platforms.
