Preview: Hull’s newest magazine set to be launched next week

8 December 2017

A new magazine called ‘Speak Out for your Community’ is holding its launch event at the Octagon Centre next week.

The magazine aims to give young people a voice and discusses topics that actually matter to them.

In the launch issue, there are many interesting topics covered from mental health, warren records, LGBT, poetry and spoken word and much more.

The event will be held on Wednesday, 13 December at the Octagon Centre, 70 Walker Street.

There will be free food (provided by Fareshare), activities and entertainment. Everyone is welcome. Speak Out volunteers want you to come along and get a free copy of the magazine and support them.

Speak Out has been a part of a paid employment initiative project, under the Create to Change project, which targeted young people aged 16- 29.

In total the paid employment project gave 51 young people living in Hull paid work experience for 12 weeks. Only a small number of these participated in the magazine project.

Not all of the content produced for ‘Speak Out’ has been done by the young people on the scheme, other people volunteered to get involved and put forward content.

Speak Out are in association with West Hull FM 106.9 community radio station. Project leader Becky Darnell said:

“The magazine wouldn’t have been possible without the support of the Goodwin Development Trust and the Humber Learning Consortium and the fab team of volunteers.”

Also at the same event Goodwin Development Trust are launching the DO IT project.
