More than a Manifesto, the document also shares visions for a future worth living, how-to guides, resources and critical reflections.
This process brought together the ideas, feelings, demands and processes of young people from Haringey, Tower Hamlets (and more) with artists Becky Warnock, Simon Tomlinson, Tyreis Holder, and Yomi Sode. In parallel to these commissions, complementing research around the need, ethics and practicals of art, young people and mental health was led by Tara Brown and Nicola Sim with Seth Pimlot and the vacuum cleaner
