Brief

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.

Problem

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.

Resources

My Skills: Leadership. Sponsorship & Funding. Branding & Graphic Design. Workshop Facilitation. Event Management

Budget: £2,620 funding from Unltd

Partners: Birmingham Settlement. Forgotten Vintage. Aston University

Outcome

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.
