#ShakeTheSystem: A Decade of Shaping Change
It’s 2020 and we’re celebrating 10 years of Voices that Shake! with an anthology, toolkits, workshops, showcases and more.
Over 200 marginalised and underrepresented young people have directly been part of the personal and community transformation that the unique space of Shake! offers.
Many of us have gone on to start our own collective projects, social change action, art initiatives.
Through Shake!’s approach, we have influenced 1000s of people, in and beyond the UK, through our politics, artworks, short films, poetry, critical writing, events, trainings, actions, talks, activism, and community support. From our family, our friends, to people in youth work, education, youth policy, funders, arts/culture, community and social movements – we have made an impact.
