TRIPWIRES
Open dialogue is the key to a healthy society, but some fear the dangerous potential of truly free speech. But closing down opinion to protect sensibilities denies the right to freedom of expression. So where do you draw the line?

Hear from the TRIPWIRES TRAINEES

It’s one of the most pressing questions of our times and the start point for Index on Censorship’s new youth programme TRIPWIRES. We work with young leaders in the making aged 17 – 23 from East London, using the arts to create an open space to explore freedom of expression, self-censorship and offence.

This is a pilot project. Early investment will help our dynamic young trainees to make the best case for the project’s importance and dynamism to their peers, teachers and all who work with young people.

With your help TRIPWIRES will:

• Bring young people into the free speech debate
• Spread the principles of freedom of expression
• Support a new generation of peer educators
• Sponsor youth arts and performance
• Train and mentor emerging creative talent
• Bring innovation to education in London and beyond
