August 12-14th 2016. The Do Farm, West Wales.
60 teens. 12 speakers.
Fresh, local food.
Where do Ideas go to school? Where does 'How Might We' go to school? Where does curiosity go to school? Where do creative teens go to learn about ideas and creativity, apart from their bedrooms.
Teen Do is 2 day summer camp for creativity. To learn from speakers, to learn from workshops, and to learn from each other.
Today's teenagers are the digital pioneers. We are the first generation to grow up in this new social media world. And, we can make change happen real fast, if we learn how to share our ideas, prototype them, and make them happen.
Teen Do’s purpose is to provide an environment where curiosity, creativity, and confidence can thrive. So we can figure things out for ourselves. No other generation has grown up with such amazing tools that allow us to express ourselves and create.
We’ll hear stories from inspiring speakers. We will make films together and create our own bands. We will listen to each other. We will bake bread and eat tasty food. Ultimately, it’ll be a fun and inspiring experience.
By working together, we will leave with a better understanding of who we want be and what we want to do about it.
What we want to learn (the things they don’t teach us at school):
- How to listen to your instinct
- How to build your idea into a real thing
- How to laugh at failure
- How to look after yourself
- How to find your purpose
- How to ‘be’ as well as ‘do’
- How to embrace the outdoors
- How to survive the internet
- How to make your ideas happen
Tickets cost £500 but we are doing things a bit differently. £250 will be paid by parents at the time your application is accepted and, here’s the fun bit, the remaining £250 will need to be raised by you over the following few months.
As part of your application, you’ll need to tell us how you plan to raise the money. Because we believe that magical experiences only hold the potential for change if you really want them to.
And just like for Do, the talks will be available online for the whole world to watch for free.
