This issue came up in candid conversations with many of the young people across the UK who collaborated with us to create SIXTEEN.

In response we are hosting a debate with our partners Tate Liverpool. Speakers, young and old, will set out their arguments for or against the motion. A discussion with the panel and audience will follow, co-chaired by Ella Benson Easton and BBC Radio Merseyside’s Roger Phillips.

Join us for a lively and stimulating event on

Saturday 3rd August.
