KWMC presents paper at national conference

On Saturday 18th April, Sarah Shorrock, one of our Junior Digital Producers (JDPs), presented a paper at an event at the University of Nottingham, organised by the British Education Research Association.

The paper, written by Sarah, was about the action research approach our JDPs adopted when developing the film ‘The Glowing Divide.’ It explained how the Visible You project was devised in an ongoing way, based on what the JDPs discovered through their research with young people, to ensure that the process and the subsequent film were relevant to young people.

The paper, which will be available to download from this website soon, was very well received by the national audience.

Visit the Visible You project page for more information about the project and our interactive documentary exploring how social isolation affects teenagers – and what we can do about it.

 

Meet the 2014 Junior Digital Producers

In October 2014 Knowle West Media Centre employed eight Junior Digital Producers (JDPs) – a group of young people aged 18-24 who are working collaboratively on an exciting web design, video and data project called ‘Visible You‘.

The project will produce an interactive documentary focusing on social isolation amongst teenagers in South Bristol.

The Junior Digital Producers (JDPs) are with us for six months, in a role supported by the Creative Employment Programme, and they are the second cohort of young people to be employed in this way – the first having worked on the Data Patchwork programme. Throughout their six months with us, all JDPs receive skills and employability training, whilst undertaking project work and research.

Some are joining us straight from education whilst others have had various work experiences. As the group are at the halfway point between education and their first job in the creative industries, the JDP role offers the opportunity to learn new skills and grow in a creative environment. So far they have had workshops covering web coding, photography, documentary and film training. They have been guided by project leader Naomi Yates, who has organised external workshops with organisations and companies including Ludic Rooms.

Now in the programme’s third month, the JDPs each have their roles within the project and they will be updating the Visible You project page regularly.
