Voice Out Women has developed the arts and cultural Festival which hosts many local young artists and various dance groups, as well as poetry and drawings from students from local schools and individuals. We offer young people the opportunity to train as volunteers, develop new skills, build confidence and self-esteem. This enhances their relationship with others through the planning, marketing and delivery of our spring Arts Festival. We are eager to ensure the perpetuation of our virtues which are the pride of our country and its great people, through a logic of integration, union, community cohesion. This event uses arts to raise awareness among young people of the impact of moral deprivation, identity crisis, radicalism and terrorist violence that is increasingly targeting our young people in general and young women in particular.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
We are working in line with the Government Counter extremism strategy that says: “... lack of integration can limit educational achievement and ...Where opportunities are limited, divisions between people of different backgrounds can grow and be exploited by groups or individuals, who seek to stoke divisions and fuel hatred. Such isolated communities will be less resilient to the threat posed by extremism." We believe therefore that by engaging communities together, we can reduce isolation and greatly benefit our local community as a whole. Furthermore, the project involves students from local schools who will present their art, and a prize will be given to the school with the best drawing. Local voluntary and statutory organisations will also promote their activities. Local businesses will display and sell their products on the day. The workshops will allow people to try new things or develop their skills, the Mayor of Enfield will give prices to the best art and acts on the day.
