Working in partnership with Communities First, the Vale Youth Service and the Vale of Glamorgan we designed a project aimed at young people aged 14-19, to engage and motivate them to regenerate a small area of their community. The young people designed how they wanted the area to look, created the artwork and made a film to document the project. The project ended with a celebration event showcasing the film and unveiling of the new area which was accessible to everyone in the community.
The aims and objectives of this project were:
We used film and all aspects of the film process - film-making and film production, film education, film exhibition, etc - to engage, motivate and inspire young people aged 14-19 years, Not in Education, Employment or Training (NEET).
By combining knowledge and best practice in the education sector with the highest quality of digital technology training and film-making skills, it's possible to achieve a steep growth curve in raising the attainment of Young People across Wales, including traditionally hard-to-reach cohorts. Our Project partnership between BLC & BRC has a shared goal to support young people to create their own inclusive content that is bilingual wherever possible and appropriate - and which engages even the most hard-to-reach groups in the making and sharing of great films.
The project was highlt engaging for all participants and they took pride in the area that they had regenerated for the community. Below is the film that had been produced by the participants.
