Greenbelt is an annual, all age, multi-disciplinary arts festival with its roots in the Christian tradition, but with an embrace that is inclusive and wide reaching. Greenbelt Festival is developing the way it works with and for young people and to achieve this we needed a full time member of staff. We are very grateful to the Anchor Foundation for contributing towards funding this role. Since August 2010, we have been able to employ a Youth Participation Co-ordinator who has been working to engage young people as decision makers, volunteers and programmers
