Engaging young people means doing something meaningful, interesting, relevant and often, fast. Because, many times, we don’t have time. So this workshop will look at how to do just that, using conversation, the totally open and intriguing art of asking attention-grabbing questions; the use of video and image, physical movement and simple yet meaningful, playfulness. All based on common sense, good research and experience. We will also look at the idea of ongoing engagement, the minefield that can disrupt this process, and what might help; as well as ways of both maintaining engagement.
