This video introduces Total Arts – the participation group for the older age group. The Mini Bytes sessions are similar activity sessions, for young people aged 9-13 years.
What to expect
Cambridge Junction has successfully worked with disabled young creatives aged 13 – 25 for over 10 years, through their Total Arts programme. They have now extended their offer to young people aged 9 – 13yrs with with Total Arts Mini Bytes!
The group meet fortnightly on a Saturday. Young people work alongside other disabled young artists, professional filmmakers and facilitators to create innovative short films. They can get involved in all stages of filmmaking from devising and script writing to directing, shooting, performing and editing. They can also learn skills in animation. During the sessions young people receive quality care from a team of skilled support workers.
Through participating, young people can gain an Arts Award through Trinity College London – a unique and nationally recognised qualification to develop creativity and confidence.
There are limited places for these sessions, so if you are interested email the coordinator to reserve your child’s space: [email protected].
