NCS enlisted poet and director Caleb Femi to create a visual manifesto for the future of "Generation Lockdown".
After crowdsourcing views from NCS’ network of British teenagers, the spoken word piece highlights what really matters to this generation following the pandemic. Femi, who was featured in the Dazed100 list of the next generation shaping youth culture, directs a short film that follows the journeys of three teenagers coming of age during lockdown. It is told through moving image, photography and content submitted by NCS grads, scored with poetry, original music and soundscapes. The piece ends: "Shout out to those who stood for equality / Shout out to those fuelled with hope and joy / And now together, we’re ready to rebuild the world."
