Rise Up: Adverse Childhood Experience

Be prepared to laugh, cry and learn from the young people of Sefton as they share with you their performing & creative arts work, that is high quality and bursting with creativity!

Merseyside Youth Association SPACE has engaged schools and youth groups from all across Sefton to create performing arts pieces for the NOW Festival. This year’s theme is Rise Up: Adverse Childhood Experience and will be a very exciting festival including drama, dance, film and music performances.

With an estimated 1 in 10 children and young people now experiencing some form of mental distress, Sefton’s young people want to make their voices heard! With the performing arts as their tool, they have done just that.

The concept of the NOW Festival came from a desire to engage young people in creative discussions around the topic of mental health. For many, creative arts are a way to express and challenge opinion concerning the things that matter most to society. The NOW Festival is a Merseyside wide festival and is entering its fourth year. NOW Festival Sefton is very excited to be collaborating with the Atkinson and bringing the festival to Sefton!
