I’ve been testing over the last few years how to engage young people, and some older ones too with some workshops they will really enjoy at festivals and events. Often teenagers are the forgotten age group at festivals… too old for the kiddy-craft ideas, and too young for adult activity. The idea behind the affordable creative spaces I offer is to provide a fully supervised art experience, which guides young people into a positive direction by providing skills which can be used for many other projects outside the festival setting and therefore helping teenagers gain confidence.
I specialise in creating fun, safe and inclusive art spaces at festivals where children, teens and adults alike can create spray paint art, collage and up-cycle objects such as old vinyl, canvasses, T-shirts and found objects. I am fully CRB checked and my team are experienced in youth work, volunteering and parenting. I love it when excited and engaged teenagers are badgering us early in the morning to wake up and get started; as this shows we have succeeded in creating a space where “hard-to-reach” adolescents feel accepted and a sense of belonging. It means we have succeeded in our mission and this is very rewarding!
Justlife is a charity set up to offer opportunities and experiences to homeless individuals.
Everyone of all abilities are able to undertake my workshops and participants can stay as long as they like whilst creating their art. Please see some of the testimonials below…
