To help make Barnet even better for those who live, work and study here.
The filming studio will attract nearby university and college students who are disabled and/or use wheelchairs to complete their media projects. There will be sets for newsreading, photographing, filming, theatre and acting stage, a kitchen for cooking and a room on the side for yoga and workshops/seminars. The aim is to ensure disabled people and wheelchair users have equal access to media usage and the spare room can be used for workshops to spread education and knowledge to disabled and deaf people.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
The high street will have more visitors and we can use nearby cafes/restaurants to buy coffees or lunch, therefore the high street will have more people which means more economy. At the end of the day, the high street will thrive more. It is a fantastic opportunity for disabled people to have a place where they will feel safe from any discrimination, difficulties or barriers and do their filming projects in peace. Being in a positive environment, will enable them to feel more empowered and happier to complete their projects. Disabled people will be offered job or volunteering opportunities based on their skills and their en-ability to carry out tasks keep a business going. This will enforce their CVs even more and they can venture out into the wider media industry with more confidence and experience under their belts.
