Voices that Shake!

An Anthology of Creative Movements

‘This beautiful 10-year Anthology serves as testament to, and record of, the radical and visionary work of Shake!. In a context where so much transformative and liberatory work has gone unrecorded, amidst a constant threat of erasure, this Anthology serves as a refusal to be forgotten.[…]’


A full-colour 320-page book of Shake! young people’s creative writing, original artwork, photographs and essays; also pieces by artists, facilitators and elders involved in Shake!

Shake! the System Guidebook:

Rituals, Tools & Practices

A 60-page guide to Shake!’s methods, to inspire, amplify the work, strengthen movements.

This Guidebook is not a how-to book. It is about how to set the scene in a deep way so that any creative activity that emerges is coming from a place of integrity, of honouring each person’s starting point, of self-accountability, of group accountability. The Rituals, Tools & Practices you will read here aim to prepare the ground for the creativity that is necessary to change this world while sustaining and celebrating young people and their allies.
