Voyage is proud to announce its new partnership with ACE Dance Birmingham, Bijlmer Park Theatre and Untold in the Netherlands. 3 of Voyage’s SHLA graduates participated in the international conference Best of Both worlds to explore the importance of incorporating cultural heritage in youth work. Young people and professionals contributed to workshop debates and symposia looking at the strengths of this approach. Krysten one of our youngest members was quoted for an inspiring statement in front of 200 people “its important to value cultural education as its like giving young people a book without pages.”
Voyage will be forging relations in Zuidoost Amsterdam which is home to over 100,000 people from over 150 diverse communities and cultures to develop our practice, explore potential for youth exchanges and deepening our impacts with our young leaders.
Huge thanks to Ian and Gail Parnel from ACE for the invite to Amsterdam and to Oluwatoyin Odunsi for this powerful transformative opportunity.
