81 Minutes: Acts of Exuberantly Defiant Young Activists

181 181 people viewed this event.

81 Minutes: Acts of Exuberantly Defiant Young Activists is a collection of videos, created and curated by Young Londoners. This is a creative peer-to-peer ‘happening’ for selected young people aged between 17-26. The project saw the UpLIFTers LIFT’s group of Tottenham 17–19-year-olds creatively working with 18-21 year olds of the Advocacy Academy (the UK’s only campus of youth activism) to bring a moment of focus to youth activism and the innovative approaches of young people to the local and global issues that matter to them.

Using existing content supplied by over 30 young Advocacy Academy Alumni, the UpLIFTers reviewed, critiqued and joined in a structured jury panel to select the final shortlist of films that made up the 81 Minutes.

This is to be used as a celebration of activism and as a resource for young people across London and beyond to access.
