LET IT ART! Young People drawing ideas about global terrorism and violence Young people will be able to take part in an interactive workshop, enabling them to engage in ongoing research by creating their own piece of artwork and exploring how exposure to media reporting influences their thoughts and ideas about terrorism and violence. They can then see their artworks displayed to members of the public. Youths can also contribute to discussions and future research agendas on this topical subject. Members of the public, including parents, will be invited to provide feedback on the artwork, raise questions and issues, and gain insights into young people’s media interpretations.
