Speak Up! youth events 2014

We are happy to announce the dates for the 2014 Speak Up! youth events!
The open air exhibition always gives us the opportunity to explore what people think about the winning images and about gender and LGBT issues. Local youths interview passers-by about the photo panels and filmed their responses. These interview films (in Dutch) of the different districts of Amsterdam have been merged together into a compilation video.
The compilation will be used in Speak Up! youth events: open discussions with young people about being yourself. They share stories about whether they are free to be themselves and how much freedom they allow others to be themselves. During the events the teenagers and a panel of people who are ‘different’ in some way share their experiences, which increases mutual understanding and respect.
