Birmingham and Manchester

I left Germany to check out Ask a Teenager at the AND Festival, Manchester and meet with the Fierce Festival in Birmingham to talk about future plans. As is often the case with the early days of project conception, the ideas were BIG and ambitious. We're talking about doing a Nightwalks with Teenagers and seeing if we can engage not only as many youth arts groups in Birmingham, but see if we can hook up with some of the young people we are working with now at the Ruhrtrienalle. That would be sick!

But likely unlikely. But you never know.

In any case, we're starting to build the desire and intention to begin to connect up youth that we've worked with on previous project, the goal being to start to form an international network of Young Mammals who can create work and create their own organizations in association with us, applying our approach to young people.
