WHO IS WILDCHILD?
MEET SOME OF THE GANG!
The cultural divide has grown steadily. What started as a cultural gap has now become a cultural chasm.
A void has been created between those who have and those who have not, those who are understood and recognised and those who are not.
Access to the arts, both in education and in day to day life provides alternative perspectives of the world, a variety of methods for self expression, tools for creative thinking and confidence to communicate.
A creative mind questions, challenges and empathises. A creatively confident person is proud to use their voice. Increasingly, this is a state of being that is obtainable solely by the privileged.
WildChild will harness and channel the energies and creativity of the young people we work with. We will empower them to develop and voice their opinions. We will support them to overcome the hurdles in their way and to unleash the WildChild within them.
