A free opportunity for classes and youth groups in Yorkshire to come up with ways to improve mental health by working with experts in the field.
IVE’s Applied Creativity Labs (ACLs) aim to give children and young people the creative behaviours and thinking skills they need to develop innovative solutions to real world challenges.
We’re looking for groups of up to 22 young people between 10-25 years old to take part in an Applied Creativity Lab via Zoom, working together in groups accompanied by at least 2 members of staff each session. The Labs will run through February & March.
Young people aged between 10-25 years old. Young people will work together in small groups (of 5/6) accompanied by at least 2 members of staff from your organisation each session to accompany young people in breakout rooms alongside IVE staff.
Up to 22 young people per lab.
We will begin the process with a professional expert presenting young people with the challenge of finding new ways to improve mental health, and will then give young people creative thinking training and access to a resource-bank of ‘experts’ from the NHS, local mental health organisations, business and universities.
Nine one-hour-long sessions.
They’ll need to be able to access the Labs via Zoom, whether in groups in class, or individually from home.
To run a free lab with your class or youth group, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
“I thought the way you communicated with us and organised the presentation was very structured and professional. [The Labs] gave the young people a taste of a working environment which was well thought through and considered. IVE brought the young people in and gave them credit. There was respect and confidence in everyone […] and it was a pleasure to be included!”
