Our grant will enable it to develop systems and procedures to prepare to replicate the model more widely. This follows a successful pilot working with a large London YMCA. The organisation was described as a "beacon" regionally in its approach to working with and involving young people, and the range of activities and courses it offers.
Xplode is a youth-led charity, based in Bolton, which works to upskill 12-22 year olds through a magazine, website and vlog (video blog). This grant will provide core funding for the organisation, as it begins to plan its expansion across Greater Manchester. It aims to support young people into education, employment and training, and to positively influence the way young people are portrayed.
The proposal is to develop a digital arts outreach programme, initially in a light-touch wayusing technology such as mobile phones and tablets. This will form the basis to build more engagement and drama based approaches supported by a youth and community artist. Activities wil take place in community venues and public places such as parks. An additional dimension to the project is around creating a 'story' or narrative which will link the different pieces of work undertaken.
