Flip The Script - Empowerment Day

Ghostdavandal Originals attended the Flip the Script Event Day on Friday 3rd May 2013 in Bracknell. The Event Day focused on providing participating youths with engaging positive, motivational activities designed to meet their social and developmental needs. It offered a source of advice, information and sign posting to those who are NEET to attend to work, work experience, college, or education and training.

Full of inspiring and motivational speakers, artists and musicians, Ghostdavandal Originals were delighted to deliver A Customize Ur Life Workshop.  The day began with a introduction speech from Executive Director , Stefan Russell of Experto Credite, who related his past to his goals and current achievements as a source of inspiration for him to reach his goals. A performance from the rap duo.... seemed to kick start the day and got the ball rolling.  Youths were divided into small groups and rotated through different areas of the event during the whole day, with a session left for them to pick as their favourite workshop.

For instance, Area 1 was set for workshops discussing Healthy Relationships run by Anita Bhardwaj, Area 2 workshops were held by Dr Michele Mc Dowell about positive self talk, Area 4 was all about Fitness and Nutrition with advice from Jennie and Carl (we found ourselves taking note of some of the health advice) and we where situated in Area 3 between the two workshops.

 Lifford ( an amazing soul musician), The dance group, Bodecia and Alim Kamara were amongst the performers and even our very own Marvin Hagglar performed an impromptu collabo with the young talent, Brendon Sparks. Alim Kamara definitely spoke with intent and got beneath the surface with his life changing presentation and with his charisma and humour, was definitely a highlight of the day.

The Event Day had a definite buzz about it and the messages of self development, self improvement and self expression floated in the air, behind the scenic backdrop of the Golf Centre, you couldn't have asked for more.

Special thanks to Dee Albert (@FlipTheScript5), who organised the event alongside Liz Hassock (Bracknell Forest) and to all the young participants that attended. All the Facilitators who we worked along with and met, Lyric L, Rurai Hignell, 4ward Thinking, Michael Joseph, all the Flip The Script staff and volunteers, special thanks from the Ghostdavandal Team and see you at the next event.
