Your old briefs, please
This is an urgent request to planning & strategy folk (responses needed by monday night)
Can you help us help the Ideas Foundation? [http://www.ideasfoundation.org.uk/]
It's a UK charity that is committed to championing creativity in young people
"We broker projects between industry and education.
We spot & develop young people’s creativity.
We pilot creative education projects and champion transferable skills within the creative industries and beyond.
We provide effective work experience, internship and
apprenticeship opportunities. We signpost further & higher
education routes to creative employment and enterprise.
And having done all that, we encourage our creativity scholars to stay in touch and get involved"
So here's the shout out to Planning for Good types – do you have a
social policy brief that you've written that these kids can do work
Maybe the client didn't buy it? Maybe the suits or the CD didn't like it? Or your boss? Or you?
So what are we after?
A brief to target a youth audience on a social policy area
It could be in areas such as smoking cessation, sexual health, knife or
gun crime, drug or alchohol abuse, bullying, internet safety etc.
We'd just like your old briefs. Or, if you really want to write
a new one, please feel free to do so but just make sure you include the
usual information (the problem defined, the audience, etc) and try to ground it in reality and evidence…
Thanks very much in advance on behalf of the Ideas Foundation – we promise to keep you in touch with what folk send in and what they do with them
Pls send your briefs to me at markearls [at] hotmail [dot] com by Monday night
