“The young people developed new skills. Having a finale to showcase their work was also motivating for them; it’s given them ownership. Even setting up the installation themselves has given them and extra roles and responsibilities.” Barney McGuigan Youth Leader, Reach Across 


“We learned so many new skills from print making, designing wall art, painting and developing the sign to show young people who visit Derry all the attractions and places to visit. Along the way, all our opinions and ideas were considered and used in the final showcase piece. We discussed lots of hot topics such as what changes we would make to our local area if we had the power. We loved doing this project” Linda Gallagher Include Youth
