Students aged 14-15 years old from Westminster Academy and artists Chloe Cooper, Jenny Moore and Phoebe Davies came together to explore questions of race, gender, class, identity, authority, collectivity and social awareness.
The collective worked together for three months to produce The Making Of… a live radio programme developed from a series of critical discussions and performative actions.
The Making Of... was recorded with a live audience on Wednesday, December 9 at the Cockpit Theatre, London.
In autumn 2015, the Serpentine Youth Forum was: Alejandra, Alex, Amir, Amer, Annika, Ben, Betty, Chloe, Hans, Heba, Hussain, Hussein, Jenny, Jessika, Ksenija, Leander, Natalia, Nour, Phoebe and Tobi.
