With the success of our previous project and the creation of a youth-led creative media team, the program will evolve by providing peer-to-peer mentorship for young creatives to obtain new skills, experiences & leadership roles within creative media and an opportunity to join a collaborative youth-led media team working alongside young artist based within the Ealing borough creating professional video content and hosting podcasts by helping young artist excel but also provide young creatives with volunteering and paid work opportunities working on events in 2023 and beyond. The Program is designed to empower young people from Black, Asian, and ethnic minority groups aged 16-25 by offering professional leadership roles and mentoring opportunities assisted by award-winning creatives and led by young people teaching them the technical/creative aspects of filmmaking and media production by providing 15 weeks training in media, event organizations, post-production and peer to peer support.

What we'll deliver:

  • 15 weeks peer to peer Creative Development Program/Support
  • Youth media Team Documenting 2 weeks Professional Dance Program
  • Live-streaming two International Dance Battle Events
  • Live-streaming 1 Hip Hop Theatre Showcase
  • Creation of youth-led podcast on youtube/Instagram focusing on local Creatives
  • 7 professional Videos by young Artists produced by the youth media team
  • Documenting of Acton Carnival 2023/Artists
  • Training in: Photography, Broadcasting, Videography, Editing and using multiple cameras
  • Virtual Reality Exhibition screening of professional Videos and achievements
  • documentary of the program & established Youth led media production Team

Why it's a great idea:

With the lack of opportunities and inequalities in work within creative media for young creatives from Black, Asian & minority backgrounds and the impact of the mental health crises the project will provide platforms to develop and engage in creativity safely exploring, learning, making, creating, and socialising. It will provide mentorship, volunteering and paid work opportunities for those who want to pursue creative paths and develop leadership roles whilst joining an uplifting team with decision-making roles to document, and increase opportunities for local artists/creatives including working on established internationally recongised events and dance programs which will provide multiple skills to help young people make decisions, think critically and creatively. The project will go hand in hand with our other planned project for 2023 and provide multiple creative platforms for young people to be creatively engaged and inspired.

  • 6x safeguarding Young People training (January 9th 2023)
  • 6x Disclosure and Barring Service Certification (DBS)
  • Purchasing of Camera's, camera gimbal, Microphones, lighting, Laptop, latest Live-streaming equipment

The experience gained by working with young people during our last successful media development program has inspired us to evolve our program and establish a youth-led media team and expand our work with young people further by introducing new elements part of our project & becoming more inclusive by expanding our program in an artistic way and give young people that have visible and non-visible disabilities the opportunity to have a voice and be part of the team who will lead the program. The cultural development program will develop leadership skills, creativity, and critical thinking, through the collaborative and artistic process of making documentaries, videos and broadcasting by amplifying the voices of young people in the Ealing Borough with an opportunity to join a media team and gain professional experience with potential careers in the media industries or join our creative media team which consists and is led by young creatives from Black, Asian, and minority backgrounds.
