Empowering young people with art and technology
Networked Narrative was a successful partnership programme (2014-2017) that empowered young people from across Burnley, Wigan and Hull to have an influence over the decisions involving two art commissions by artists Re-Dock and Mark Titchner for both online and public spaces.
The project took place within a drastically changing, political landscape, where our partners including; libraries, youth services and local authorities faced huge redundancies, restructures and drastic funding cuts. Yet, the project endured through great art, the help of good food, humour, patience and determination.
Our final evaluation report tells the story of commissioning art with artists, young people and organisations across three different locations within the expanse of the Northern Powerhouse Corridor, resulting in incredible exposure to a broad & often disenfranchised public. We believe the artists took risks in creating inclusive and personal works, which resonate the voices of young people and comment on the places they are from.
