Lincoln, East Midlands
Zest will lead workshops in schools throughout Lincoln and create vibrant artworks to create space for young people to reflect on their year and release the voice of a generation.
Throughout March, Zest will lead 35 FREE workshops in schools across Lincoln, for up to 1000 young people aged 10 – 19 years old. Their aim? To create space for young people to reflect on their year and release the voice of a generation. Workshops will be facilitated by a team of Zest’s Creatives and young people from Future Proof. Later this summer, the words they gather will be turned into 40+ vibrant artworks, ready to be found on flags, banners and billboards in every corner of the city centre. Refresh Lincoln is set to reclaim the city centre for young people, placing their voices at the heart of Lincoln’s recovery.
Refresh Lincoln will share the questions, advice, and hopes of Lincoln’s children and young people, bringing colour and conversation to the place they call home.
