Are you aged 14 to 25? Do you want your voice to be heard? What are you passionate about? We want to know what’s important to you, and why!

On Monday 9 November the Royal Exchange will be hosting TaY TALKS - an evening of talks, rants, speeches and creative provocations - ranging in content from the personal to the political - which shine a spotlight on the issues that are important to young people in 2015.
 
A TaY Talk can be about anything at all - something you love, something that makes you angry, or an experience that made you who you are today… As long as you can speak with PASSION, you will find an audience willing to listen.
 
TaY Talks will include a mixture of live talks, filmed talks, animations, music and performance. We are looking for submissions from young people aged 14—25 who would like to contribute to the event.
 
Why not create your own TaY Talk and send it to us for inclusion in TaY Talks?
 
TaY Talks is being delivered as part of  the Co-operative Foundation’s Truth about Youth programme at the Royal Exchange Theatre, which is challenging and changing negative perceptions of young people across the UK.
TaY Talks is part of Call to Create, a global collective of cultural organisations that believes it's time to shout louder about the great art young people make.
