Rising to the challenge
Our ORBIT Youth Council met for the second of a series of bi-monthly weekend get togethers last month. Following the hectic success of our trip to London, weekend two provided a small amount of reflection time for us to agree as a team what our aspirations for the project are. We identified three things which were of real significance to us:
· Awareness of career paths in the Creative Industries and improved networks
· Ability to present ideas and engage in debate with diverse audiences and communities
· Our Youth Council having a voice in their community
During the weekend we worked in small teams to identify communities where an exciting creative intervention could have real impact. We also took part in a practical green screen workshop, learning how to set up and film in a way which which would allow exciting backdrops to be edited into our footage. This is part of our aim to equip Youth Council members with a broad range of skills for the Creative Industries and broader world of work.
We were excited to share a fantastic opportunity for the Youth Council to work on Jupiter Rising, our summer festival offer. Watch this space for more news in the coming weeks.
