Work with young women through forms of street work and the role of youth work, street work, social work, and socio-cultural animation
On May 21st 2017, Janet Batsleer was a key note speaker at an event organised by Activist Childcare in Brussels. The event was organised alongside the organisation for street workers based in Brussels, Dynamo International to launch a new publication: ‘Filles et autre minorise- e-s. Les jeunes commes les autres? Vers un travail de jeunesse accessible à tou-te-s’
The day focused on discussion of work with young women through forms of street work and the role of youth work, street work, social work, and socio-cultural animation. Janet Batsleer introduced some of the findings of the PARTISPACE project as part of the conversation and made links within her key note with a range of practices which can unsettle the existing norms which control and limit opportunities for young women of all backgrounds, as well as for both young women and men from minoritised and marginalised populations and from socially excluded neighbourhoods.
