The GAP in the Market festival is all about creating greater access to arts, play and creativity, primarily, but not exclusively, directed at 16 – 25 year olds in Europe’s youngest city, Birmingham. GAP in the Market offers everyone – young people, artists, participants and public audiences – an eclectic mix of creative opportunities to make, share, learn, listen, play and engage together.
One of the highlights of the program is the public discussion on drama and democracy on the 19th of July:
Drama, Democracy and Justice: Bringing together a critical discussion on how drama is, can be and could be used to animate the relationship between young people, democracy and justice.
Speakers include: Senior Lecturer at BCU Chris Bolton, Young Peoples Champion Councillor Kerry Jenkins, Barrister Iqbal Mohammed and others. Artists, educators, social justice workers and members of the public are all welcome.
