Home Adventures is a project in which students from a number of schools work together with visual artists, musicians and a cinematographer to produce a multi-media film.
It is an in-depth exploration of the place that students call home, and adventuring through the history, geography and lived experiences of the region, students compile inspiration and ideas to create their 30-minute film.
Over six months, students from a number of schools enjoy fortnightly workshops with visual artists, musicians and a cinematographer. They research, write, compose, capture and edit their own film, working to professional industry standards.
Previous films have included the tale of a sheepdog who walked from the Cheviots to North Yorkshire, the trials and triumphs of suffragettes from the North East, and the stories of students’ own lives and experiences of the 21st century.
At the end of the project, students come together to celebrate their work at a screening event hosted in a local independent cinema.
