Making for Change – Craftspace’s craft and social justice programme, gives you the opportunity to explore the social justice issues that affect you. This year we are focusing on Aston and Newtown, Birmingham.

So are you 16-19? Do you live in Aston and Newtown? Do you have an interest in social justice? Would you like to make a change whilst learning new making skills?

There are two ways to get involved, either as a participant of the Making For Change programme or as a film maker documenting the programme.

You don’t need any formal qualifications or a long CV of social justice experience. You just need to have a passion for learning and a desire for change and we’ll  fill in the blanks.

What is involved?
Packed full of making sessions with professional artists and data specialists and an exhibition visit, it is a great chance to inspire change and learn new skills.  Young people taking part will also have the opportunity to gain a bronze arts award and on successful completion of the programme receive a £50 bursary.
