Campaign: To stop stop anti-social behaviour through performing arts

As a way to tackle anti-social behaviour in our community, we feel that encouraging teenagers to take up performing arts could offer them an alternative way to spend their time.

 

As a music student myself, I know how standing in front of a crowd can give young people confidence and motivation going forward. 

 

But more importantly, it’s something creative they could be doing rather than roaming around the streets.

 

Therefore, with the help of Fixers, we’ve created a workshop booklet so young people can understand what anti-social behaviour is through performing arts.

 

Hopefully it will help them realise that it's unacceptable and has a negative impact on where they live.
