We’re excited to be working on a new short film showcasing the educational opportunities our grantees are creating for London's youth.
Thursday 23rd November 2023 marked the first day of filming for our new short film which will be released early next year. We’re excited to be working on this new video showcasing the educational opportunities our grantees are creating for London's youth.
Four of our grantees will feature in the video: The Yard Theatre, The Autism Project, The National History Museum, and Onwards and Upwards. Young people at Theatre Peckham and Stepney All Saints School are also contributing voiceovers.
Our first day of filming took place at Onwards and Upwards – a charity aiming to break the cycle of re-offending by creating jobs that change lives for good. The XO Bike Shop in Lewisham Shopping Centre is just one example of the many ways they've created fantastic employment opportunities for young people.
The purpose behind our short film is to celebrate the wide-reaching success of the organisations and individuals we've worked with over the last couple of years.
Alongside celebrating the work of our current grantees, we also hope it will encourage more to apply for funding in the future.
