Fresh Perspective creates joy in numbers

A huge ‘congratulations’ to the team of young people who have been working on Fresh Perspective for over two years now. It began as a project to test new ways to represent younger voices in and around Skipton. However, in that time, they’ve run in-person events including meet ups in cafes usually closed in the evenings. The group really came into their own during the first lockdown in Spring 2020 though, recognising the need for younger people in the area to still find ways to come together, they created Joy in Numbers – a series of online workshops with a difference. The workshops ranged from yoga and horror make-up to sci-fi and movement, with participants sometimes receiving kits beforehand so they had everything they needed to get involved. The project has also received funding from Heritage Action Zone, Skipton and was a huge success. The team are taking a short break this spring but you can stay up to date with the project on their Instagram @freshperspective
