LEADERSHIP. PROJECT DESIGN & MANAGEMENT. COMMUNITY
As part of the UpRising Leadership Programme, we were commissioned to design a Social Action Project to make a difference in our community around a social issue of our choice.
Rapid Socio-technological changes over the past few decades cause a rift between the older and younger generations. Not many spaces in for young people and senior citizens to interact and enjoy each others company.

The Lost Links/Here I Am project is a creative social action project I headed up with an aim to bridge the gap between the older and younger generations in Birmingham.
The project consisted of a blog site which explored public opinion on the issue, and live debate on the issues that cause a divide between the older and younger generations and finally a more celebratory event that brought together old and young from various background for an evening of live film, fashion and musical entertainment.
