Creative young people living in Richmond upon Thames interested in learning to direct, produce or star in a movie, are being invited to attend a two day Media Project at the Powerstation Youth Centre in Mortlake on 17 and 18 August.
The Media Project forms part of the government’s flagship National Citizenship Service. This involves teams of 16 year olds from around the country taking part in a range of experiences to test their limits, team work and creativity, delivered by ‘The Challenge Network’ in the London area. Young people in the borough are being invited to join the NCS participants, who will be stationed at Powerstation and learn how to direct, act in and produce a professional movie in two days.
Cllr Christine Percival, Strategic Cabinet Member for Education, Youth and Children’s Services said:
“It’s really exciting to have a National Citizenship Service project come to the borough and a great opportunity for our local young people interested in media to try their hand acting or directing using the facilities at the centre.
“I am really proud that our Powerstation has been chosen as a location for this project. The centre is a one stop shop for budding film makers to learn the craft and also offers a range of other activities including football training, cooking lessons and organised trips and away days for local young people.
“As well as giving us a chance to showcase our great Youth Centre, having an NCS programme come to the borough will hopefully also inspire our young people to try something new and use the facilities available to them.”
