Hello, lovely to see you here, thank you for wanting to find out more about us. Amplify profiles children and young people's voice in creative and cultural learning. It’s designed for professionals working in the cultural, education and youth sectors.
Our goal is to demonstrate the range of conditions that enable children and young people to develop their voice in different contexts. It’s for those who are well practiced in this work, and those who are just starting out. We hope you find meaningful and useful information related to questions such as: How is this ‘youth voice' work managed?, What impact does ‘youth voice' activity have both on your organisation and the young people who are participating? and How do you fund your youth voice 'activity?
Amplify has been created by Arts Council England's Bridge Network, which is a network of 10 Bridge organisations connecting the cultural and education sectors so that children & young people can have access to great arts and cultural opportunities.
Individually we (Bridges) work regionally with schools, art organisations, museums, libraries, music education hubs, local authorities, Further Education and Higher Education Institutions and many other partners to develop cultural provision.
The episodes have been created by the team at Voice magazine working with the Bridge Network curated organisations.
