Asking For a Friend is a new youth-led project facilitated by Writerz & Scribez and the South London Gallery, exploring the impact of friendship on our mental health.

Are you 11-15? 

Kicking off in the February half term, we invite you to join a new youth group that will work on a series of creative projects, exploring friendship. You will also plan a fun, free event for your friends to come to later in the year. 

To find out more or to join the Asking For a Friend Collective come along to our free, taster day on Monday 12th February 2024 (during half term), 11am-3pm. There will be a chance to meet other young people and there will be a free lunch  and lots of snacks. RSVP online to let us know you’re coming. 

How adults can support:

The meetings of the newly formed collective will coincide with a series of free creative workshops, popping up around Southwark, designed for children and young people to think about their friendships. These workshops will evolve and respond to the conversations that happen in these events and conversations that are had by our newly formed Asking For a Friend Collective. 

To find out more or to host one of our free workshops at your school or estate please email our Residents’ Programme Manager, Polly South 

And please do share the open invitation to join the collective with any young people you feel may benefit from participating.
