The young people who have been taking Bristol, the UK and even the world by storm, present this epic music video for their new energetic campaign song — “we hope this will make people sit up, listen and take action.” (Fahma Mohamed, Integrate Bristol Junior Trustee)
‘Use Your Head’ is the title of the song and the music video features people dancing and singing along to show their support for the cause to end violence against women and girls (VAWG). Politicians and Ministers including Jane Ellison, Minister for Public Health, Stephen Williams, Minister for Communities, Lynne Featherstone, Minister for International Development and Bristol’s elected Mayor, George Ferguson all feature in the video. Other famous people include the Lord Mayor of Bristol, Bristol Magnum photographer Martin Parr and Northern Soul dancer and YouTube star Levanna McLean.
“It was important for us to feature famous individuals as well as members of the public to show the range of people willing to give their time and energy to contribute to the young people’s message.” (Oliver Zimmermann, director of the music video)
The video also features a vibrant array of characters, including break-dancers, the kebab sellers from Easton Take-Away, a lollipop man, members of the Women’s Institute, the owner of Solanki Stores in Windmill Hill, a police woman on her horse and many more.
