The second series of Amplify, a digital magazine series profiling children and young people’s voice in creative and cultural learning, launches on Tuesday 7th June!

A collaboration between Arts Council England’s National Bridge Network, Amplify showcases best practice in youth, creative and education organisations across England via video case studies and interviews with practitioners and young people themselves. Aimed at professionals working in the cultural, education and youth sectors, the series has been designed to inspire and give practical tools to support work amplifying the voice of children and young children.

With episodes launched weekly, the new six-part series will explore themes including youth voice and place, youth voice and disability, youth voice and the least heard, pathways into work and progression – along with an episode challenging current perceptions of what culture is. Arts, cultural and education organisations from across the county have contributed case studies including Shout Out For Arts – Warwickshire CEP, Coventry CEP represented by its member organisation Positive Youth Foundation and Derbyshire Virtual Schools.

This new set of episodes follows series one, launched in May 2021, which reflected on the impact of Covid-19, how it affected young people, and how sectors adapted to using different platforms to ensure their voices were heard.

‘There is no doubt that Amplify is a rich resource, excellently packaged and easy to navigate.’ – Feedback on Amplify series one.

Real Ideas are really proud to be a part of this project and share the youth voice of the South West.

Amplify series two will be launched weekly from Tuesday 7th June via the Amplify website All episodes from series one can be seen on the site now.
