'Young People with Something to Say' Festival- November 6th 2019 @ Doncaster College


As part of the ESRC Festival of Social Science the Doncaster Council Public Health team with Doncaster College are pleased to be holding an event for young people.

Our event ‘Young People with Something to Say’ has been planned with young people and is all about sharing young people's experience and views of living and growing up in Doncaster.


The event is taking place on Wednesday 6th November, 1.30 - 4.30pm at Doncaster College, Chappell Drive, Doncaster, DN1 2RF.

The event will showcase work that has been produced with and by young people themselves. The event will bring to life the experiences of young people living and growing up in Doncaster; what supports them to develop and grow; the challenges they face; and how this might affect Doncaster’s ambition to be the most child and young person friendly town. The event will also offer the chance for young people to get involved further in matters that are important to them through debate, discussion and interactive exhibitions.

The event is aimed at 11-19 year olds. It is free to attend but spaces will be limited. Schools/sixth form colleges will be allocated a set number of tickets. For further information and school bookings please email SocialScienceFest@doncaster.gov.uk



An Arts Competition is taking place alongside the Festival. Young People in Doncaster, aged 11-19 years can submit a piece of art (written; digital; physical) to win a prize.  The art must express your experience of living and growing up in Doncaster as a young person.
