A team of artists from Oldham Theatre Workshop spent 4 weeks over the Summer Holidays working with a group of young people aged between 13 and 19 at Limehurst Integrated Youth Centre
The brief was to create a five minute film on the theme of ‘Perspectives’ using a range of artforms including Drama, Circus Skills, Animation (both clay and stop motion), Photography, music making, poetry and script writing.
‘The project unleashed an awesome amount of creativity and talent; it encouraged and developed collaboration and team work between the young people. It enabled the young people to make new friends. It has also helped engage the young people with the work of IYS (Integrated Youth Services) and their centre at Limehurst. The young people were left with a desire to do more….’ Dave Cullen – Project Manager (OTW)
‘The young people have really benefited from this project, and have developed a new interest in film and media…’ Sue Palfrey and Maggie Holland (Integrated Youth Service)
