We are delighted to invite you to the launch of The Factory Youth Zone’s ‘County Lines’ exhibition at Neo on Thursday 19th April 2018, from 5-7pm.
Whilst providing a fun and informal place for young people to spend time, we also want to educate them on serious issues which could affect them. We do this through engaging activities to develop their awareness and resilience, encouraging them to make positive choices.
We’ve found art is a fantastic stimulant for raising issues and creating debate, most recently taking this approach with the topic of ‘County Lines’: a national issue affecting young people.
Our long-term partner, Bruntwood will be displaying powerful and striking art painted by some of our young people most affected and we’d love for you to come and view this work. Our Senior Youth Leader, Michael Phipps is now recognised as a national expert on the topic and will be discussing the work, him and his team have been doing to help young people caught up in a world most of us can’t imagine.
