Brexit workshop with Undivided
Literature Wales are working in partnership with Undivided and National Union of Students Wales to hold an event at Bangor University exploring the thoughts of students on Brexit and what it means to them. The event will start with poetry to stimulate discussions around Brexit and what it means to young people aged 16-30 in Wales. Discussions/poetry created will be uploaded to Youtube/Undivided website and used to collate the Welsh feedback to the project.
The event in Bangor University on 10 December 2016 2.00 – 4.00 pm, will provide opportunities for students to discuss and respond to Brexit, what it means to them and what demands they would present to the Government regarding the negotiations.
An event at Cardiff Metropolitan University on 29 November led by Patrick Jones stimulated a range of discussions. You can listen to a sound file created from the workshop below:
Undivided is a youth-powered response to Brexit championing the voices of all young people from all background to get involved in the Brexit negotiations. Primarily an online platform Young People can submit their demands for the negotiations and vote on the demands submitted by others. As we move forward over the next three months we’ll hope to engage 1million young people online in order to create a shortlist of 10 top-demands which will then be submitted government. www.weareundivided.co.uk
Alongside this Undivided is hosting a series of regional events across the UK to engage young people on a physical level and provide the support needed to make them confidently submit demands online and spread the Undivided message amongst their communities.
