This year, during b-side festival, we will be hosting our own WHY? Festival led, produced and programmed by our current cohort of [intransit] Producers. The [intransit] Producers are 5 under 25s who are particularly interested in social activism, young people's rights and developing their skills in producing.
WHY? What's Happening for the Young? is a festival that celebrates youth rights and youth voice. The festival is inspired by the UN Conventions on The Rights of The Child and the workshops, performances and discussions the [intransit] Producers have programmed are all based on Articles of interest to the local Portland youth community.
The festival activities will take place in and around Easton Square and will include: Theatre Workshops, Performances, Local Music, Discussions around Mental Health and Fake News, Spoken Word Workshops and Performances and even alternative village fête games!
We will be releasing the full programme soon, so keep your eyes peeled!
All of the activities at the festival will be free - but they will be ticketed in advance.
