Children & Young People Now (Haymarket Business Publications Ltd;1/16/2008, p36
The author reflects on the role of arts in transforming and enriching the lives of young people, as demonstrated by British artist Peter Oliver who used arts as a means to build young people's confidence, skills and understanding. She believes that arts can be used to develop a range of competencies, and are capable of linking people across faith, age and experience. For those interested in learning more about arts, the author suggests one to visit www.enyan.org.uk or meet a youth worker.
