Throughout the Bilston East area a number of workshops are taking place delivering an array of activities to support and entertain 10-16 year olds and families. Over the course of the summer holidays they will be learning new skills such as team work and building friendships as well as working together to solve problems and work towards their personal goals.
After talking to a number of youngsters taking part in these workshops here are a few of their goals for the summer:
“Getting along with people and just making new friends” - Presley
“Getting here on time to not miss any of it!” - Keisha
“More confidence, more knowledge” - Sarlotte
In addition to this here is an insight into some of the activities they have been up to:
Whilst documenting the summer programmes we are also running film workshops in the Bilston East area to teach the young people some basic filming skills that they can take away with them and use to make videos of their own. Below are a few snaps of us in action at Lower Bradley along with some comments about what they learnt;
“I have learnt to act and use equipment for behind the scenes in a workshop today” - Krystal
“I have learnt about a movie set and how it looks and how it could help me be a better youtuber” - Theo
“I have learnt that there is a boom pole and how to use a camera, also I have learnt not to be shy in front of the camera” - Chloe
The next film workshop is next week Tuesday 22nd and Wednesday 23rd August at Bilston Town Hall where we will be creating content for a news show as well as presenting and filming.
