Making Space

Saturday 10 February, 11am–2pm

RainbowYOUTH Drop-in Centre  10 Abbey Street, Newton
Free Event

If you’ve ever wanted to be part of a queer youth group, or even wanted to create one, come along and explore the wonderful variety of existing groups at RainbowYOUTH – and get information on how to start your own!

Schools, universities, any community is fit for a queer safe space – and this is the perfect place to start. Find out how to make sure yours is engaging and inclusive from other young people who’ve already created their own groups and spaces. Learn how to create and manage them, what to expect, how to deal with challenges and conflict – everything you need to know.

If joining an existing group is more your speed, there are plenty to choose from! Meet and learn about RainbowYOUTH’s safe, diverse and expanding groups – including Outside the BoxDungeon Queering and Artistry, to name just a few.

RainbowYOUTH invites you to our Drop-in Centre for an open day of fun, food, and community. Come along and see what a group has to offer you – or what you have to offer a group!
