Get Social

Acts of Activism allows you to connect with other young people aged 16-25 interested in learning, engaging and understanding social activism.


 

Acts of Activism is a 10-week social action group for 16-25 year olds to explore change making, share knowledge and ask questions. It’s a safe space to socialise, express your frustrations about inequality and come together to encourage small and big acts of activism (mini-campaign, anyone?). There is no criteria to be an activist, if you are curious about how change comes about then you’re in the right place!

Meet the team

Kavita (She/Her)
“There is no requirement of activism-ness to join! As long as your intentions are to learn, you will fit right in!”

Kavita is the lead facilitator of the sessions. Her role is to lead the sessions and make sure that everyone is heard and supported throughout their time with us each week. She also helps with most activities and discussions which is her favourite part by far!

What can I expect?

A really open environment to get to know other young people, share your questions, learn and engage in change-making.. In Kavita’s words, ‘this group is an informal space to vent feelings with others who are a bit fed up with how the world is at the moment!’.

As young people, we are constantly in a place where we see injustice. This is a space where we can be around other people who also feel a bit powerless but want to make change. These sessions centre around figuring out which ways we can express how we want to see the world and the small or big steps we can take to get there and be part of those big conversations.

How do the sessions run?

Over the 10 weeks, we will begin by getting to know each other and learning about what we can do as a group to create change. Then over the weeks we will be exploring those ideas through planning a mini-campaign of your choosing!
