(BLOODY TORIES)

 

 The Boys Project is a three-year multi-platform, activist artwork created by Bryony Kimmings in collaboration with an army of young men from council estates across the UK. The men are trained to become peace warrior artists for positive social, political and media change. The project consists of a 6-month social campaign, documentary, education initiative and theatre show. 


In brief, the army and artist will embark on a viral media, mainstream music, public art disturbance and social campaign over a 6 month period that will directly challenge and change the ways young working class men are stereotyped, vilified, abused and misinterpreted by both the government and mainstream media in the UK.


During this 6 month public art project, the army will assume the role of unofficial advisors to government in hilarious, loud and audacious ways. They will have concrete, real world aims that they will be pushing to achieve during the artwork's lifespan. They will attack the establishment and inspire a whole generation of young people through videos, music, public art interventions, performance, rallies and demos, sketches, speeches and news delivered via a specially made website. This work will be backed by excellent PR campaigning, lobbying and viral expertise.
