Watch our HOW TO CHANGE THE WORLD artist prompts

HOW TO CHANGE THE WORLD is our new creative opportunity for young women aged 14 – 24 years.

We’re asking you to tell us what you think needs to change in the world and how you want it to happen. Every Friday for 5 weeks, we’ll post a video prompt by a guest artist sharing ideas and insights to help you get your creativity on the page.

You’re invited to watch the video prompt and send us a written or illustrated response relating to the overall theme, HOW TO CHANGE THE WORLD.

3 pieces will be chosen each week and will be included in a HOW TO CHANGE THE WORLD zine, released on 8th March (International Women’s Day). The writers and illustrators of these responses will each receive a £30 book voucher.

Come back to this page every week to see a new video prompt.
