WHY? Summit

What does a festival that celebrates young people’s ability to make change through the arts look like?

Join Southbank Centre’s WHY? Young Activists at WHY? Summit for an inspiring day of creative workshops, debates and keynote speeches from leading artists, to inspire us to collectively design the future content of our festival.

Founded in 2014 by Artistic Director Jude Kelly, WHY? What’s Happening for the Young festival has welcomed thousands of children and young people to celebrate and explore their rights. To ensure that WHY? festival inspires and enables young people to share stories and effect change in society we are holding this unique event to hear what you think should be at the festival. We will be inviting young people aged 15 – 25 (and up to 30 with access needs) from across the UK as well as arts and charitable organisations to join us for a inspiring day.
