Walthamstow Academy, London

Imaging Partnership worked alongside students who wanted to submit scripts and illustrations to a Theatre Bridge Project. The winner of this prestigious national competition has his/her work produced at either Soho Theatre or Young Vic Theatre in London.  Imaging Partnership delivered three filmmaking workshops focused on pre-production scripting and set design to help students to visualise how their writing could be translated into theatre. This helped to shape and revise the student submission.

A second group of art students, led by an Imaging Partnership practitioner, composed unusual ‘still life’ photographs during a series of three photography workshops.  The photographs were saved on the student’s PCs and translated into QR codes. These QR codes were then placed around the walls of the art gallery in Walthamstow. Visitors to the gallery could then view the photographs through their smart phones, iPads, or tablets.

These creative projects were initiated on the belief that enabling artistic expression empowers people to improve socioeconomic conditions and emotional wellbeing for their families, communities, countries and future generations.
