2014 is coming to an end, and we’ve got one final exciting Shake! event for you all before we welcome the new year: our youth-led training day!

Our second Youth-Led Continued Professional Development (CPD) training day, taking place on December 14th, will be an opportunity for the young participants from Shake! to offer training workshops to activists, artists and change-makers on issues they have identified as relevant and worth discussing based on their own expertise and experience. At Shake! we see this as an integral part of challenging power and privilege dynamics in the cultural, environmental and NGO sphere as well as an opportunity to promote real intergenerational dialogue. During this particular training, Shake! participants will offer the following workshops:


1.  Police Brutality and State Violence

2.  Re-evaluating Your ‘Self’

3.  Youth, Technology and Social Media

Facilitators for the day include: Annie Rockson, Christianah Babajide and Maaike Boumans.

Workshops will be followed by an afternoon session in which we will discuss how to implement new ideas discussed in previous workshops into our work and daily practices in a strategic and mindful way.


Venue: Platform, 7 Horselydown Lane. Tower Bridge, London SE1 2LN
Time: 10:30 am- 4:00 pm.
We will be sharing breakfast from 10:30 onwards, and have a prompt 11:00am start.

We really hope that you can join us and contribute to what is looking to be a day full of engaging workshops and conversations!
