We have been working with an amazing group of young Londoners to develop and record a new podcast series called Act On.

The Act On podcast focuses on issues facing young Londoners’ lives, such as inequality, the challenges of social media and the positive impact of participating in live music and cultural activities. The topics and ideas came as a result of our 2019 World Mental Health Day Festival and the young Londoners who made it happen.

The series opens up conversations on breaking down barriers, building resilience and the importance of having a sense of community. The first 6 episodes of the Act On podcast series were recorded in collaboration with Up For Arts and BBC Radio 1’s Katie Thistleton.
