Join us to celebrate the premiere of Speakerbox, a collaborative film project between artists Shawn Sobers, Rob Mitchell and young people from Full Circle Project.
Throughout early 2016 artists Shawn Sobers and Rob Mitchell will be working collaboratively with young people, aged 8-13, at Full Circle Project in Bristol to develop a new film.
Every day during the project the group will make short clips exploring topics that interest them which will be edited, without hierarchy, to create a moving portrait of the time spent together.
Please join us to celebrate the results:
2-4pm: The film will be screened on a loop in the gallery during this time.
3.45-4pm: Shawn Sobers, Rob Mitchell and young people from the project will give a brief talk about the project.
Shawn Sobers is a filmmaker, photographer, writer and lecturer. His research is primarily concerned with the use of media and arts in participatory education, advocacy, heritage, marginalised voices and untold stories.
Rob Mitchell is a graduate of the University of Bristol's Theatre, Film and Television degree course and has worked as a creative media producer of film, video, radio, interactive media and print.
In 1999, Shawn and Rob worked together to form Firstborn Creatives, an independent production company for broadcast television, which has since established a strong reputation for using creative media to educate, entertain and give people a platform for creative expression.
Full Circle Project exists to provide support to a currently diverse community to enhance life opportunities and to raise aspiration through access to a wide range of services, activities and advice delivered in a holistic way.
"We promote social inclusion and community cohesion in all aspects of our work, with families voices and opinions to influence positive change in St Pauls and the surrounding neighbourhood"
The project was also supported by Aspiration Elevation Creation, who provided music mentoring for young people throughout the project.
