Steve joined young people from across Birmingham to celebrate the talent and energy of young people with dance, music, poetry and a blend of different cultural traditions.

The event, held at Priory Square on 9 August, brought together youth organisations including Voice is Power, Young Peoples’ Parliament, Young Disabled Champions and Children in Care Council.  

 

As well as celebrating the talent of young people the event had a serious side and aimed to raise awareness of cancer risks for young women, sexual health, concerns about homelessness and the cost of higher education.

 

Youth Exposé are focusing their next efforts to demand the right to make representations directly to the Commission on Youth Unemployment recently announced by Birmingham City Council Leader Sir Albert Bore.

 

Steve McCabe said:

“I was happy to support these young people. It was a great event and shows just how talented and organised the youth of Birmingham can be. It's wrong to regard young people as being a problem.

 

“The youth of Birmingham have tremendous potential and I think senior politicians need to listen to and work with these young people so that the next generation can rightfully contribute to Birmingham's future.”
