Last weekend I was asked to take part in an open day at the Southbank Centre in central London for their 'Strive' youth programme:
In a drop-in workshop I asked them to concentrate and ask themselves:
"What are you striving for?" and finish the sentence: "I strive to..."
I then invited them to express their answers either in images or text, a sort of 'logo for living' or personal manifesto, on canvas bags. After some thought, and drawing, some examples:
It was great to meet such a variety of young people all interested in different things, but some just struggling to focus on what they really were interested in. Hopefully they will keep asking themselves the question and it can help them on their journey...
Thanks to Jess Ihejetoh for asking me to take part.
