As part of the same project we created a short film about a group of young people on the Community Sports Leadership Programme; the film follows these Leaders through their training and records some of the sports sessions they delivered within their local community. The film was premiered at an event in September, following a photo exhibi:on of the Community Sports Leadership Programme.

 

B&D Beach 2012 -­‐ To celebrate the Olympic and Paralympic Games, Barking & Dagenham Olympic Ambi:on Team asked us to design a scenery to go around the Beach 2012 in Barking Town Square.

 

The design was painted with help from Barking school pupils at the Countdown Schools Day, despite high winds and howling rain!

 

B&D Molten FesLval -­‐ As part of Barking and Dagenham’s Annual Arts Fes:val, we brought together a group of young people to devise a promenade performance around Barking Town Centre to celebrate the values of the Olympic and Paralympic Games. The story of a young athlete under pressure to succeed provided audience members and actors with the opportunity to reflect on the themes of ambi:on, dedica:on and achievement. The performance also asked audience members to recall their favorite moment from the 2012 Games.

We know that being involved with the arts as a participant or as a viewer can have a profound effect on people's lives; whether it is running a film project for young people at risk of exclusion or giving adults with learning difficulties the chance to create stories and perform in front of an audience, we know that life is made more enjoyable and rewarding when we spend time doing something creative with a group of friends, old and new.If you believe the arts are as important as we do, please consider making a small donation. We appreciate your continued support!
