Rebecca Hardy working on creating a short film which outlines one of our key pieces of work as a bridging organisation, Culture Net. Culture Net is the primary source of information on arts and cultural provision for children and young people in the West Midlands. Containing information on theatre, music, film, media, digital arts, dance, visual arts, museums, archives, libraries and heritage organisations, Culture Net profiles the major providers of cultural services for 0 to 19 year olds in schools and other settings.
Culture Net will be launched in the spring and the short film we are producing will act as an introduction to the resource – how it will support young people (and those who work with them) to access arts and culture and how people can use it. We will be working with a local presenter and a young presenter, filming inside and outside key cultural venues in the West Midlands. I’ve attached the script for your attention (however this is not for circulation at this time).
As one of our Hub Schools, we’re keen to find a young presenter from BOA. They would need to be available on February 20th for filming in and around birmingham and would be confident to work alongside a professional actor / presenter. The final programme will be shown on Culture Net, Youtube, Vimeo and various other digital channels and of course the presenter can use the programme to showcase their skills too.
It would be great to put out an open call to the students and hold an open audition – Unfortunately, timings are quite tight and I wondered if this would be possible to hold the auditions on Tuesday 5th Feb at 4pm (or there abouts) at BOA?
