Beatfreeks equips, enables and empowers young people to create positive change in their lives and communities. This grant contributes to the salaries of staff who will develop REACT, a novel approach to working with young people, which helps them to mobilise quickly and launch art activism responses to issues in their lives and their communities. It will support young people to run events and campaigns, offer a small grants pot to young people for their campaigns, and work with them to amplify the impact and reach of their work.
