is taking media, and
the filmmaking process, and applying it to improving communication and
skills in young people here in the North East.
The use of media and communications as a means of engaging
young people is nothing new, but it can lead to better team working and
the exploration of
issues that affect them. By working as a team, (but also having
goals), participants can learn about effective communications, leading
greater confidence to approach the job market with more knowledge and
self-belief. To be clear, this is not a filmmaking workshop as such,
not necessarily about training people in camera craft, but it is about
using a range of media skills to help improve communication.
It is intended to
projects, but It's an
alternative that can fit into an
existing re-engagement plan; designed to offer fresh
ideas and a chance to explore issues in a creative way.
