Planet Earth Day


Young people from Arts Centre Washington organised a day to raise awareness of the climate crisis.

Young people from Arts Centre Washington took over for the day to transform the arts centre and raise awareness of climate change. Providing activities to local residents and other young people encouraging them to take care of the earth.

Having taken part in Make It Happen training, a project management course, the young people planned everything across the day from hiring artists, helping advertise and overseeing the event on the day. Gaining new skills from the training, participants learnt about marketing, recruiting a high quality artist and the roles involved in running an event.

“​​I would love to take part because it would be helpful later in life for a career in art… I would like to take part to learn new skills and make people happy.”
