Event description

Description


You are cordially invited to a performance like no other as Bristol's young people take to the stage at the Colston Hall to share their learning from the 2018 'What Would You Do?’ (WWYD) programme.

Over the last few months the WWYD programme has been empowering young people across Bristol schools to cope with some of the challenges that they face today in their community. With the help of Crimestoppers, the children have been creatively exploring how to speak out and stay safe when it comes to crime through weekly sessions with Unique Voice.

Join Crimestoppers in the West Country, Unique Voice, hundreds of community members, the fabulous Riff Raff choir and most importantly the talented and creative minds of Bristol’s young people aged 9-10 for a finale night of learning, celebration and a clear message that Crimestoppers can help our city become a safer place.

Please register your attendance below. Each ticket registered will also be entered into a prize draw.

In the meantime, have a peak at what success the 2017 programme generated across the city here.

We look forward to seeing you there.


About the project;

In 2014, Crimestoppers in the West Country, Bristol Police and Unique Voice launched a pioneering programme to empower young people to cope with some of the challenges that they face today in their community.

Together they designed and implemented a programme that used drama, song and dance to explore difficult issues raised by the pupils themselves – issues that they sometimes face on a daily basis resulting in the birth of the project

‘What Would You Do?’ includes working with 9-10 year olds through drama based workshops and performance, the project is an early intervention to grooming for gang crime, online safety, healthy relationships, mob mentality and exploitation. Within weekly sessions the children experience these themes through participatory led work, sharing their knowledge through performances and films; thus advocating key messages back to their family members and wider community either on the main stage or through community films.

To date we’ve worked with over 30 primary schools across Bristol benefitting over 1,800 young people, 30 school communities and thousands of parents / carers and families of the children. The 2017 outcome resulted in engaging over 800 community members to a finale film premiere, with over 70% of these audience members never attending events such as these. These films have been used locally and nationally to evidence how communities can report crime anonymously and confidently.

The project has evidenced an increase in the number of people who would now turn to Crimestoppers as a tool in reporting crime with over 85% of young people admitting that through the project they know the number and context in which Crimestoppers can help, mirrored to the initial 62%. These outcomes have been evaluated through analysing the participants questionnaires that they completed pre and post project which helps us measure any change in attitude or approach that we can link to their participation within ‘What Would You Do?’. The responses from the data also suggest that the project has impacted on the young people’s resilience, cohesion and outlook of their community by participating in exercises that encourage and celebrate their vision for a safer environment to live in.

The main objective of this project is to look at how everyone can help to make their community a safer and a better place to be in , by learning how make an informed “choice” when faced with difficult challenges or decisions and how to Speak Up, Stop Crime, Stay Safe and remain 100% Anonymous Always using the Crimestoppers 0800555111 number or the online reporting forum at crimestoppers-uk.org
