On Friday 2nd December parents, friends and local youth organisations gathered together at More Music for an evening of inspirational performances at Chameleon Lvl 4.
This is an annual event co -produced by young people from More Music, the Prop Up Project, Lancashire Youth Challenge and Lancaster and Morecambe Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service; Chameleon is a collaborative project championing young people’s resilience and celebrating creative passion.
More Music’s ’More Media Collective’ and young people from LYC spent the autumn term planning every aspect of the event. Through the process they developed new skills, friendships and the confidence to run, host and perform.
The evening itself demonstrated exactly how Chameleon provides a positive environment and safe space for young people to discuss mental health issues. From moving spoken word pieces about difficult personal experiences and stunning jazz to an en-masse performance of ‘Times Like These’ and perhaps the world’s first hip hop yoyo display! The night was an amazing showcase of young people’s confidence, creativity and collectivity.
