Comics Youth Safe Spaces

Safe Spaces is for 13-25 year olds, on:

  • Thursdays – 6-8pm online
  • Saturdays – 3-4:30pm face to face, in the Comics Youth HQ on Tithebarn St, Liverpool City Centre, Suite 3.3

These sessions offer young people the space to develop their writing and creative skills through:

  • workshops;
  • publishing opportunities from our publishing house ‘Marginal’ (which is run by young people, for young people);
  • creating campaign work.

The Safe Spaces sessions are tailored to the groups’ wants and needs, mainly focusing on topics such as inclusivity, safety in the city, mental health and recovery.

We are currently beginning to develop a Trail through Liverpool, compiled of spaces young people feel safe in. We will then use these spaces to showcase their work, writing, poetry, art and more! We will use a podcast to guide visitors around the city explaining the work and reasoning behind the campaign, which is to make young people reclaim their spaces in the city centre and understand what it meant by a ‘safe space’, and how to create them.
