Youth Screen and Sound allows young people, mainly but not only, from Turkish/Kurdish communities who are at risk of social exclusion or criminal activity to become meaningfully involved in music and film activities leading to participation in a festival of film and music in their local area.
They will gain skills in music making and film literacy alongside valuable experience of festival production, through participation in high profile public events. They will become part of a network that offers long term opportunities both professionally and socially.
Their role as active citizens will allow skills sharing with younger teens as the project progresses.
Music workshops started in autumn 2020 and will resume after the lockdown. Organising Community Cinema workshops will be online and start from Friday the 1st of May, 3pm.
