Age 16-19? Be a Box Developer!

What is Change in a Box?

There is a lot going on in the world right now. It can be difficult to make sense of everything or make your voice heard. Change in a Box is a new creative kit for 13-19 year olds. It’s for anyone who wants to make a difference but doesn’t know how. The kit helps your creativity and confidence so that you can be more active in your community. The kit includes inspiring stories, useful advice and creative challenges. All the materials and instructions are included, and you don’t need any special experience.

How can I get involved?

Change in a Box is about making your voice heard. We want to know which stories to include, what topics you’d like advice about, and what creative challenges you enjoy. Anybody between the ages of 13 and 19 can tell us what they think by taking our survey (click here).

If you are 16 or older and based in Lancaster, you can sign-up to be a Box Developer and be even more involved in the design and development process!

What does a Box Developer do?

As a Box Developer you will:

  • Meet the design team online and discuss what issues are important to you
  • Attend a planning session to guide the look and feel of the final product
  • Receive early versions of the creative challenges to test out
  • Be one of the first to receive the finished version of Change in a Box!

Box Developers will attend three 40-minute online workshops. You can choose to attend as many or as few as you like. You will have the chance to contribute to a new and exciting project, learn more about product development from the team, and improve your creativity and communication skills.

Young person sign-up

Change in a Box is a creative kit for 13-19 year olds, developed by Theatre in the Rough. It includes creative challenges, inspiring stories, and advice for being more active in your community.

The project is made possible thanks to Lancashire Youth Challenge, The Culture Co-Op, Curious Minds, and Lancaster University.

One hundred young people in Lancaster will receive a box for free. We are also seeking young Box Developers to help guide the look, feel, and content of Change in a Box.
