Cultural Films on Tour

A travelling shed will be showcasing digital stories of people from North Somerset in a bid to raise awareness of the different cultures in area.

16th March 2010

 

Students from Priory Community School in Weston-super-Mare and members of the Somerset Racial Equality Council will be creating their own stories on film that reflect aspects of their lives.
Working with creative industry experts at the Watershed, the young people’s ideas and expertise will culminate in a travelling exhibition called Storyshed.
Eight students and eight adults from different cultural backgrounds will be taught how to make their short films by the Watershed over the next six months.
Fiona Matthews, creative producer of the Theatre Orchard Project, said: "The cutting edge expertise lent by the Watershed promises to create an exciting learning experience for all the young people involved."
The students will also help to design a shed which will house the interactive installation and will be created by Somerset Wood Recycling, based in Weston-super-Mare.
It will then tour the region to teach people about diversity and different cultures represented in North Somerset.
