How do we use creativity to platform young people's issues in the public realm?

"A tonne of feathers" is a social action project bringing young people's voices and concerns to life through dynamic artworks in Bristol, Southampton and Weston-super-Mare.

From neurodiversity and mental health, to LGBT+ identity and inequality, young people have expressed their ideas for the future through creativity.

In this symposium, young people, young artists and youth workers share their experiences of using creativity to address social issues.
