Greenbelt Launches Youth Consultation

Posted by Simon Cross  ·  Be the first to comment

After an initial consultation with teenagers, organisers of the annual Christian arts festival have launched an online survey, to try and make sure young voices are heard.

The initiative is an attempt to ensure that what the festival delivers, is what young people want, not just what older people think they want.

So anyone aged between 14 and 17, who is interested in attending the festival is being asked to complete the online survey, to explain what they are looking for in an ideal Greenbelt day.

And event co-ordinators have recruited a Youth Participation specialist to ensure that they can respond adequately to any suggestions that are put forward.

Greenbelt was originally seen as a youth festival, but over its 30 years of life, it has grown with its visitors, now offering a wide variety of content, from art exhibitions to worship installations.

Along with the exciting music and controversial speakers it is perhaps most famous for, it also runs a program of childrens work, which caters for children from toddler age upwards.

Although the festival is not promising to put all ideas into practise, nothing can be considered unless someone suggests it, so young people with opinions on how to make the festival better for people of their age, can share their thoughts with the festival team through the survey.

Results will be collated at the beginning of March.
