‘Rebellion’ the all girl rock band, are just one of the latest local groups to hit the Mersey scene. These 15yr old youngsters from across Liverpool; trained in classical music, then turned their hand to the rock sound in a bid to connect with Mersey youth over an issue seldom spoken of.
Working closely with a number of organisations such as the British Council ‘Connecting Classrooms’ Critical Thinking Project, Liverpool Lighthouse Music Hub, ‘Time To Change’ mental health project and the Merseyside Youth Association, they creatively delivered an innovative socially inspiring message about mental health, through words and music in a dynamic way.
‘Rebellion’s’ key message through the project, is that they hope to raise awareness and promote positive mental health and well-being especially with the youth who at times find it impossible to share their feelings and anxieties.
The Liverpool NOW Festival gave this group of Polish girls, the chance to engage and develop new ways of working and cooperating with individuals, groups and communities.
This Festival has given, local children and young people the opportunity to showcase their original live performances and films devised around the theme of Mental Health on Wednesday 10th February and Thursday 11th Feb.
NOW! Young People’s Arts Festival features youths aged 8-18 from 14 Liverpool schools and youth organisations who have performed with guest artists Darren Suarez, Maurice Bessman and Carl Cockram along with a number of organisations including the Ariel Trust, CAMHS Wellbeing Partnership and Brighton University..
Be there and be seen!!!!
