Blaze Your Trail: Youth Activism Workshop with Nevo Zisin

event date: 
Tuesday, 13 April 2021 - 4:00pm to 5:00pm

'If you’re not pissing someone off, you’re not doing activism right.'

Non-binary performer, writer and activist Nevo Zisin is acutely aware of the power of words: the importance of learning how to wield them, and how to push back when you need to.

In this hands-on workshop for budding activists aged 13 to 21, Nevo will share inspiring stories of powerful young change-makers across a variety of fields, and offer an essential toolkit for getting involved in activism, tackling topics from empowerment and imposter syndrome, to self-confidence, self-care and community-care. Whether you’re passionate about climate change, human rights, gender equality or animal conservation – this workshop will provide you with a practical, creative entry point towards becoming an activist and introduce you to other young people who want to change the world.

Suitable for budding activists aged 13 to 21.
