The Arts Excite is pleased to announce that all young people that took part in Project One, See it clearly all achieved their Arts Award Bronze.

In the summer of 2013 The Arts Excite successfully piloted it first project, Project One, see it clearly, in partnership with BESB Women’s Aid. The young people involved were presented with a brief set out by Women’s Aid and as a response to that brief the young people chose to work with a drama practitioner, photographer and film maker to create a short educational DVD on domestic abuse, for the charity to use in their outreach work.

When the project was completed we put all young people involved through the Arts Award moderation process in September 2013 and we are pleased to announce that they all achieved an arts award bronze for completing the project, which is fantastic news!

The moderator commended The Arts Excite on it innovative approach to delivering The Arts Award by providing the young people with a real world project to work toward. They also mentioned that because we are commissioning the young people to develop their own project, it clearly reinforces ownership over the work for them and that is the fundamental principle of leadership, and The Arts Award.

The Arts Excite would like to say a big well done to all those young people who worked on Project One, see it clearly and achieved their Arts Award Bronze.

Project One, See it clearly video uploaded and complete!

The Arts Excite is please to be able to announce that the see it clearly movie from project one is now complete and online.

During the summer of 2013 9 young people were commissioned by The Arts Excite in partnership with South Bucks and Berkshire East Women’s Aid to create this short educational video. The film was created by young people from Slough and will be used to highlight the signs of domestic abuse amongst young people and where those who are living with it can get help.

Well done to everyone that worked on this, it looks fantastic!

The funding will be used to support two groups of young people ( up to 15 in each) to use their creativity and artistic talents to make a difference in their local community. Working with local charity and community groups the young people will be set a brief which will form the foundation of their projects, and they will respond to their briefs in away that allows them help those charitable groups champion their causes through the young peoples skills and Imagination.

The pilot projects will begin in August 2013 and we will begin recruiting for young people and artists shortly, so watch this space.
