‘Bored’ teenagers in Lancaster and Morecambe set to benefit from new charity

Press/Media: Newspaper Article

Description

Escape2Make (E2M) will offer eleven to 18-year-olds the chance to get creative in a series of hands-on free workshops covering everything from hairstyling and make-up and fashion up-cycling to street magic, guerrilla poster art and broadcasting with the BBC.

Kyle Mckenzie, a Lancaster University student and one of the organisers of the workshop series: said: “It’s a fantastic opportunity for teenagers to gain experience in something they wouldn’t have a chance to do ordinarily. There are lots of off the wall workshops like chocolate making and mind reading, or the chance to bring everyday objects to life via animation using iPhones donated by Mazuma. It’s all about making memories, making friends and learning something.”

Jules Loke, a fellow Lancaster University student said: “It’s not like school, you’re not being told what to do, we want the teenagers very involved in the process. The facilitators are there to mentor them as to how it’s done in the real world, and then the creative freedom is all on the teenagers, they can choose what they want to do with those tools.”
