THINK Again was a project supporting young people to develop effective messages to challenge prejudice constructively, counter extreme ideas and rhetoric, and promote alternative narratives, through the creation and production of short videos. The project aimed to develop the young people’s skills, confidence, and capacity to participate and manage difficult conversations in their peer groups and communities; the videos acting as aids to these discussions.
The project was piloted in six schools across Manchester in the 2016/17 Academic year with mainly THINK Project alumni.
The six schools from across Manchester each produced a film. Each of these films discusses themes including, exclusion, alienation, bullying, prejudice, hate crime, discrimination, domestic violence, power and control, peer pressure and many others topics.
These films explore and express issues that are important to young people, challenges that are affecting them and how young people can celebrate diversity and inclusion in their communities today. Importantly, these short films are made by young people, for young people.
