ŌThe Living RoomÕ is a pioneering project that was devised and developed by staff and young volunteers at Manchester Youth Volunteering Project (MYVP). The living Room is a Place for young people to have a chat, have a say and have a chance to make a difference. We created forums and a chat rooms for Young people living in Manchester between the ages of 14 - 19 years old. All posts are moderated and posting has opening hours to ensure safety. The site is supported by; ManchesterÕs ChildrenÕs Fund, John Prescott and Manchester City Council. All of who use it as resource for getting to know the opinions of young people and working them in to their policies.
Following on from the success of the RESPECT festivals in London and
Bristol, the TUC commissioned an event for Manchester and the NW. The
festival explore the theme of ‘respect’ in a multidimensional
way through music and other artforms. Fabrikation designed all print
material and on line presence.
“Fabrikation have produced two very intuitive websites recently. The D percussion website conveys a wonderful mix of excitement and necessary information and is a central pillar in satisfying our Arts Council funding requirements. The website for the Respect festival shows a mix of in-depth artist information and whilst clear explaining the important cultural diversity core objectives of the Respect festival. We look forward to working with Fabrikation in the future” David Norris Ear to the Ground
“Fabrikation has designed our website
and promotional material to reflect and meet the expectations of the
young people we work with on a daily basis. Fabrikation has come up
with new ideas for getting young people involved and interested in our
drugs awareness programme, which have included DJ accessories, and they
have spent time working with and getting to know the young people.”
