Comics Youth are providing sessions for young people to work on their writing and creative skills, in a safe environment.
Comics Youth run sessions online called ‘Safe Spaces’ every Thursday 6pm-8pm. They are also running face to face sessions every Saturday 3pm-4:30pm in their HQ on Tithebarn St, The Tempest Building, Suite 3.3, Liverpool City Centre.
Their Safe Spaces sessions for both online and face to face are for 13-25 year olds. During the sessions they provide a nurturing, skill-building environment for young people to work on their writing and creative skills.
This is done through workshops and encouraging feedback with constant publishing opportunities through their ‘Marginal’ Publishing House that is ran by, and for, marginalised young people.
They use these sessions to build campaigns and conversations on topics that are relevant to safety and inclusion.
Within the sessions they focus mainly on topics close to the young people’s hearts such as discrimination, isolation, creative opportunities, emotional outlets and creative safe spaces within the city centre.
They are currently beginning work on a City Centre Safe Space Trail of Liverpool where the young people will decide where they feel most safe in Liverpool, then we will use these spaces and the surrounding areas to showcase their work from writing to artwork to podcasts that guide you around the city.
They believe that young people should be reclaiming their spaces in the city and take note of where and how they feel safe.
