Empowering young voices through art and activism
angry girls is a collective of young people and artists in Sheffield exploring contemporary feminism. It began in April 2023, born out of a frustration at the media’s portrayal of women’s anger as hysterical and irrational, and an aim to amplify the voices of young women, girls and marginalised genders. In this next stage of angry girls, young people, alongside Chol producers, will make creative work informed by their lived experiences and what they’ve got to say about the world.
There are three main ways you can get on board with the angry girls movement. Each route will feed into our large-scale theatre performance taking place in spring 2024.
The ways you can get involved
Become a Young Producer / Young Artist with Chol
We are excited to offer paid placement opportunities for young people aged 16-24 who want to embark on a career in the creative industries.
Alongside a team of people who work in the arts, you’ll shape and create an original show that will be performed to a large, live audience. The show will be based around combatting marginalised gender biases of all forms. Ideas for this project could come from social movements, your lived experience, the news, ideas you have to impact the future.
We will support you to create powerful work that makes people think and that promotes positive change.
Deadline: Monday 6 November 2023
The angry girls collective workshop
A safe and informal space for like-minded people to come together to share their experiences in creative workshops.

School and college workshops
Chol are offering free creative workshops for students aged 16+, facilitated by theatre practitioners. In these sessions we will help young people creatively articulate their ideas, concerns and experiences of feminism and aim to widen their perspectives. We’ll explore how we can affect change or progress through art and creativity.
Please email email@example.com to find out more and book a workshop for your students.
What makes you angry?
Help to inform our angry girls project by telling us what makes YOU angry. Send us a message / comment on our social channels, or email us on firstname.lastname@example.org. This could be anything, from the gender pay gap to being cat-called when you go for a run. We always appreciate your feedback.
Large-scale theatre performance
The youth-led theatre performance live event in the heart of Sheffield. This will be complemented by various other elements that could include artworks created during the workshops, panel discussions, spoken word performances, and music presentations, all inspired by the themes explored in the outreach work.
