The RISE Collective
The RISE Collective
RISE is a registered charity founded in 2016 to combat the persistent disenfranchisement of young
We use strong, creative platforms (such as music, art and film), powerful role-models, professional
experiences and build a range of skills so collectives of young people can self-organise, amplify their
voices, inspire each other, take action and create their own futures.
The UK is a place of both subtle and distinct extremes, not least in terms of wealth. In many places the wealthiest areas sit right beside the most deprived creating a dual existence, one
in which hundreds of thousands of young people do not have access to the same creative, political, social, emotional and economic opportunities as their peers.
This lack of opportunity builds barriers to youth participation in governance, politics and the decision-making processes that have a direct impact on their lives.
The RISE Collective was founded in 2015 to creatively tackle the persistent disenfranchisement and marginalisation of young people.
Because social and economic inequality does not equal a lack of potential.
Young people no matter what circumstances they are born into have a wealth of ideas, opinions, ambitions and dreams.
Without opportunities to explore their own potential young people can grow into this word 'marginalisation,' become angry, frustrated and lose a sense of ownership over their own lives.
Through creative arts, film, music and media RISE is shaping opportunities for young people to build self-organising collectives, amplify their voices and connect to innovative
platforms, professional experiences and strong role-models.
We want to bring forward the day that young people can build on their power and determine their own futures.
The RISE Collective aims to:
- To promote the social inclusion of young people.
- To equip young people with the skills, experiences and platforms that will enable them to pursue self-empowering activities.
