Who : Year 9 & Year 10
When : Tuesday and Wednesday
What : Have you ever wished you were better at putting your ideas across or at creating a winning argument? Seven Stories, the National Centre for Childrens’ Books, have adapted a workshop they normally run with adults so that young people at the Festival can learn these skills for themselves. Skills for life.
They’ll also spend time with Artist and environmental activist, Diane Watson, to discuss and explore the issues of single use plastics. If you’ve been watching the BBC’s series War on Plastic recently and getting involved in the climate change debates sparked by Greta Thurnberg, you’ll now how important and topical this is.
Bring along a plastic bottle, lots of colourful bits of plastic and contribute to sculpting an amazing new installation.
