Abstract

In the midst of growing political and economic disparities, young people use cultural expression and production to bring relief and publicly assert themselves. Youth work becomes in different ways a facilitator and forum for such activities, ascertaining a politicized feature. Youth workers and young people are not always aware of the – at times implicit – political nature of their activities. We explore the ways and degrees to which cultural youth work practice becomes politicized.
