‘Noted’ began as a Creative Participation project funded by the Big Lottery , working with children and young people, staff and volunteers to explore creative approaches to meaningful participation between 2010 and 2013.
The project worked in partnership with voluntary, community and faith groups to develop innovative ways of collaborating with artists and makers to involve children and young people in decision-making and services.
The Sefton CVS Children and young people’s team has continued to use creative methods to involve children and young people in setting up new projects and activities; establishing youth forums; carrying out youth consultation and research; or creating innovative practice, tailor-made for a specific group.
Please see below for a selection of films, sites and events produced during the Noted project and beyond …
