The North West Ministry of Youth have today launched their ‘Voices for Change’ Manifesto Video.
The film is the culmination of an 18-month programme which communicates the vision behind a ‘Manifesto for Change’ created by a working group of 35 young people as part of the Peace IV project that was delivered by the Education Authority and Co-operation Ireland, on behalf of Derry City and Strabane District Council from September 2019.
The PEACE IV Programme is funded by the European Union and managed by the Special EU Programmes Body (SEUPB).
The short film was devised and created during lockdown by facilitators Peter Davidson and Tiarnan Larkin from the Nerve Centre who worked remotely with the group to devise, write and storyboard the short film. The film was produced by Eavan King, BAFTA nominated animator John McCloskey created the visual effects and local filmmaker and music producer Eoin O’Callaghan from Elma Orkestra shot the film and composed an original soundtrack.
North West Ministry of Youth
The North West Ministry of Youth – Youth Voices Project is a joint project between Co-operation Ireland and the Education Authority (EA) for young people between the ages of 14 to 18. Those involved from October 2019 have become the voice for other young people for the North West and the project provided a range of opportunities for youth to create change for the better.
“Now more than ever young people need to understand the importance of having their voice heard and the positive impact that can make”. (Chris Nicol).
