digital:works is currently running a project with young people from four schools who are making documentaries about their local street markets. We have arranged for the young people to undertake historical research at their local archives and then provide workshops in oral history, film making and interview techniques which enable the young people themselves to make the films with ongoing support from us. They are then visiting their markets to interview traders and shoppers with an emphasis on exploring the history of the markets.
The final films will be shown together at the Renoir Cinema in central London on 16th July 2012 [book free tickets here] and will provide a fascinating history of four of London's street markets.
digital:works is an arts and educational charity that works with communities, providing training and creative assistance to produce arts and media projects.
