Scene Change: Positive Images, Parallels in History

Sat 23 Sep 2017



Exploring themes of cultural heritage, the changing landscape of the world for young people, cultural milestones and images past and present, young people from Liverpool 8 have looked to the past in order to inform our future. 

From the words of Dr Martin Luther King to the words of Donald Trump, from the experience of Ruby Bridges, the first black girl to attend a white school, to the growing increase of hate crime against young Muslims in school following the recent Manchester bombing, we are asking young, emerging and local artists to use these themes as inspiration to create something in response, including performance poetry, theatre, DJing, live music, spoken word and song.

This is a protest.

This is the voice of young people from our area.

Change must happen.
