YES (Youth Eco Summit) 2015

The Red Room Company will pair with Sydney Olympic Park to present a special poetry workshop at YES (The Youth Eco Summit). We're thrilled about this collaboration. Schools can register to attend our workshop, or any one of the other free workshops on the 21st and 22nd of October.
Performance poet Eunice Andrada will lead students through an outdoor workshop, using the natural space to create their own poems about change.
Using The Disappearing learning resource, students will trace memories rooted to time and place in their writing. Student poems will later appear in The Disappearing app. (Download it here for Apple devices. The Disappearing app is currently in re-development for Android devices and will re-launch in late 2015.)
Poet and artist Lilly Blue will also be running a sharing activity, Voices of YES, that enables students to creatively and collaboratively share their passions and actions for a healthy future through unique art, digital media and group work activities. These sessions are designed to inspire and express the collective voice of this year’s Youth Eco Summit.
