Here’s the story of how BOOMMfutures came about.

In 2017 a group of young people worked with the residents team at Marsh and Micklefield to create the YOLO Youth Survey - a booklet questionaire and film making opportunity where young people could express their views and needs to the rest of the community.

‘BOOMMfest’ festival of youth was created as a result to give young people the opportunities they wanted. Following BOOMMfest the BOOMMfutures group was formed, so that young people could have the opportunity they wanted to create their own projects.

Here’s some nice pics of some of the stuff that happened that led to the creation of BOOMMfutures.

The film will be uploaded soon!
