Tutu backed youth project appeals for equipment for new digital media suite
In times of social unrest and upheaval bringing harmony to sometimes volatile inner city areas of London is no easy task. But the successes achieved by Youth Futures working in partnership with Tutu Foundation UK has been remarkable.
Central to their achievements has been the provision of a platform for constructive ‘roundtable’ dialogue between disparate and sometimes openly warring groups.
With meaningful input from youth and project leaders, the discussions aim to open up a new positive relationship and understanding between disenfranchised young people and the police.
So far the project has been hugely successful in helping to rescue youngsters from a world dominated by gang culture and drugs. It is literally a life changing and, perhaps even more importantly, a life-saving initiative
But they need your help.
Youth Futures recently opened a community-access digital media suite for young people in Acre Lane, Brixton, and are putting a call out for anyone who may have any spare equipment they could donate to them.
They plan ty furnish the space to give young people access to equipment for school/college work or self-generated projects.
They are looking for the following:
*Monitors / TVs
*Screen printing equipment
*Lights etc for photography
*Anything else which might be useful!
All donated equipment be used for charitable purposes; teaching young people skills and giving them experience in the creative industries which they might not have been able to access previously.
