NCS and Karmarama, part of Accenture Interactive, has partnered with poet and director Caleb Femi to launch 'Life After Lockdown', a visual manifesto and statement of intent that reveals how ‘Generation Lockdown’ see their future post Covid-19.
Crowdsourcing opinions from NCS’s network of British teenagers through online and social, the spoken word piece highlights what really matters to this generation now, following research that revealed that more than two thirds (75%) of young people feel their voice is not heard in society, despite their futures being impacted the most.
Karmarama enlisted the first Young People’s Laureate, Caleb Femi, to create the visual manifesto. Featured in the Dazed100 list of the next generation shaping youth culture, his previous collaborations include Kano, the Tate Modern and the BFI.
Life After Lockdown forms part of the wider NCS ‘No We Can’ campaign, which aims to give a voice to a generation ready to speak their mind, inciting independence and helping them turn a lifetime of being told they are too young into a collective voice that tells the world what they can achieve.
