Ikon Slow Boat Launch

By Rosie Abbey, Ikon Youth Programme Coordinator


The Slow Boat Launch on 22 July 2021 was an opportunity for Ikon Youth Programme to reflect on and celebrate their experiences working within the collective and the opportunities that have arisen from their involvement. IYP shared speeches about what the group means to them, and what they think IYP should represent moving forward. We enjoyed an evening of music (a DJ set by Saffiyah Khan), conversations with our collaborators, and food from Wagamama in Brindleyplace.

Thank you to Freelands Foundation for supporting this event.
