Monday 5th– Friday 9th August 2013

FREE 5-day course for 16-25 year old’s

Shake! is a dynamic youth initiative using art as a powerful non-violent force for change and a celebration of youth voices. Each day Shake! creative workshops will provide space to imagine what justice looks like, experiment with new ideas, learn new tools, work with incredible artists and inspire your imagination!

You can get a flavour of how it went from the pilot of the course that took place in 2010 in the trailer that was made by the young people who took part in the course, click here. To see the full video check out our videos sections.

Over the five days, the course will include:

>> interactive workshops, stimulating dialogue & skill-shares with practicing artists/activists/educators ZENA EDWARDS, SAI MURRAY, ED LEWIS, FARZANA KHAN, MARCINA ARNOLD, HI8US SOUTH to creatively campaign for change.


>> practical hands-on techniques in spoken word, online media, film/video and music technology to develop your ideas around injustice and power. 


>> access to a/v equipment, workshop spaces and refreshments at the landmark
Bernie Grants Art Centre Tottenham.

>> opportunity to showcase your work and continued involvement in the Shake! and Platform network.


This next Shake!  intensive is this summer 5-9th of August, the theme this time is ‘Propaganda, Perception and Power!’ We are really excited about it. The theme was partly inspired by a short film link made by Shake! participants during the last Shake! in Feb:
