Soundbites for students
We created a series of short films with 5 local artists during the lockdown.
In these short films, we meet with each artist over a 5 week period, with the aims to help improve literacy confidence by giving young people and adult learners ideas and inspiration to be creative with words.
Students can choose to create their own cartoon or graphic novel, write a song, make an illustrated book, or write a play.
The full series is available to schools or anyone who wants to take part here with links to the playlists over on our YouTube channel
