Watch this space to see how the first SuperAssembly develops and how we work with BYGS and the other groups in Bangor to create an amazing performance debate event which will get everyone talking.
General ideas from our session today:
Fashion show of stereotypes - different social groups (chavs, skaters, EMOs etc)
Film made during event
Promotional film for event projected in the centre to publicise event
Event could try to help bring locals and students together
Event should have a live music aspect to it
Food- what & how should this be incorporated
Could we have a photo wall where people come along and take polaroid pics and then write a phrase about themselves
Highlight public spaces which are being used by the public due to lack of knowledge
GROUPS/ people we want to involve we want to involve:
Places to hang out over the next few weeks:
Other places where bored young people hang out?
Can be quite a violent place especially after people have had a drink- where and why does the violence occur?
Crime rate has dropped by 28.3% over the past 2 years.
29% growth in GDP in Bangor
Roughly about 10,000 people (population) swelling to maximum during to term time and then decreasing dramatically during holidays.
