Activities for Young People

Whether you’re looking to challenge yourself this year or embark on a new wellness journey, take a look at our range of activities for you to get involved in and pick up new skills that you can share.

Celebrating Our Cornrows 

We’re excited to announce a new heritage project aimed at promoting the protective hairstyle cornrow within our community. In collaboration with our local museum, we will be producing a documentary & artwork to highlight the significance of cornrows in our culture.
This project provides opportunity for young people to develop skills in areas including film making, interviewing techniques, arts and craft, public speaking, public relations, and research. Participants will also have the chance to create novelty items & accessories as part of their learning journey.
By raising awareness about the importance of protective hairstyles like cornrows, we aim to contribute to promoting health & wellbeing within our community. You’re invited to join us in this exciting project and to help celebrate and preserve this important aspect of our heritage.
Starts on 3rd May 2024 register here & the team will be in contact:
