Aston University and European Commission have partnered up with Beatfreeks to present a series of events across Birmingham giving young people spaces to make their mark on the EU.
Event One - 'BACE Does Politics' 18 young people from Handsworth explored the themes through music, dance and poetry!
Event Two - 'Don't Shout, You're Out!' poetry slam with a twist. A spoken word artist and a rapper have been commissioned to write to stay IN and to EXIT European Union. The audience judged by holding their cards up and a discussion followed each round.
Event Three – ‘Politics and Play’ we brought the play to politics, or the politics to play! Using Teenie Weenies soft play centre we explored the EU referendum through games, debates and lots of pizza – it was ball pits of fun!
