Shape Newham projects in Forest Gate

Voice of the Youth

Location: Forest Gate Youth Zone, 1 Woodford Road, E7, 0DH

Designer: Trapped in Zone One

Status: Installation completed April 2021

Project Description:

Voice of the Youth has been designed with the help of young people from Forest Gate Youth Zone. The words: Empower, Experience, Educate, Family and Growth highlights their connection with the centre, while the colour scheme and silhouettes show the different activities which they take part in there.

The young people decided to highlight their experience through these words so that the community would understand how important the centre is to them.
