Youth voice means that young people are heard by and influence institutions that are generally created by and run by adults. Youth power is about equipping young people to build their own power, and be able to take action for change. Youth voice and youth power are both important, and can work together, but they are distinct from each other.
Voices That Shake! bring together young people, artists and campaigners to develop creative responses to social injustice. Young people at Shake! have researched, curated and codified ten years’ of their groundbreaking work as a resource for other young people of colour who want to lead change, putting into practice the world they want to see.
