The theme of this year’s RSE (Relationships and Sex Education) Day is ‘Faces’. Once again, there will be a national livestream featuring Nottingham artists, as well as content from around the country. Each artist will set a challenge for children and young people to work on and submit, linked to healthy relationships. There will also be the great RSE Day assembly to start the day off and a wonderful story time with Sid Sloane from CBeebies to end the day. You can register your involvement and keep up to date with any news, resources and updates about RSE Day.
‘We are Here!’ is a film project created to engage with 12-24 year olds in Nottingham, featuring their voices and stories about creativity and life in lockdown.
As lockdown begins to ease, we want to hear from young people about their experiences and how the last year has affected them. The aim is to create a short film featuring the voices and stories of young people. The conversations will create an uplifting short film that reflects the diversity, resilience and creativity of our city. To find out more and get involved go to the We Are Here page.
During lockdown, we delivered 550 'Let's Create' boxes to foodbanks and community organisations in Nottingham. Together with The Mighty Creatives and The Craft's Council, we are now supporting 5 foodbanks to establish Craft Cupboards - building a campaign and receiving donations to keep supplies topped up and give children access to creative materials.
Our Projects page gives brief details of the bespoke projects we are proud to have supported, helping arts organisations connect with communities in new ways since May 2020.
#NottsYouthTrends is back and bigger than ever.
We need your help to help us make our city the best it can be for everyone, especially those aged 11-25. So, share your thoughts, tell us what you think and help us make positive change across Notts.
If you’re 13-25 you can do this in your own time independently or if you’re 11-12, you can carry out the survey under the supervision of an adult/teacher.
Please follow this link to the survey.
