Episode 16: Meet The Creative Protagonists - Young Working Class People in Manchester

This is a super SPECIAL episode of Poor Lass Podcast where we meet 4 young people who are part of the Creative Protagonists project. Daniel, Hazel, Ed and Jevan share their experiences with us of what it's like to be a creative working-class young person in the world today. We also welcome Izzy who is part of the great work being done by Reclaim. Working in partnership with RECLAIM, Creative Protagonists is a programme of eight young working-class artists developing their skills and creating radical artistic work. The group have been exploring social issues and themes and are creating new poetry films, exhibitions, theatre pieces and an EP. These projects are now in progress and more information will be on the Contact website soon! RECLAIM’s groundbreaking programmes have enabled over 1,000 young leaders to critically explore the world around them and to implement powerful social change initiatives aimed at readdressing the status-quo of class-based inequality, wherever it occurs. Contact is the leading national theatre and arts venue to place young people at the decision-making heart of everything. Creative Protagonists is funded by Young Manchester.
