Headliners works together with young vulnerable and disadvantaged people across London, North East England and Northern Ireland. Through learning programmes which involve unique usage of multi-media they create publications and broadcasts, some of which have been featured on BBC, SKY and ITV.
RuTC’s Adult Independent Living and Life Skills students worked together with Headliners, Crane Park Island and a professional photographer over 12 weeks to capture their experiences with nature. By creating digital stories, they faced the challenge of communicating their emotions about wildlife. Over the duration of the project, students discovered how to preserve the environment and keep riverside animals safe. In addition to learning how to express their view on nature, they also gained practical knowledge in using cameras and how to capture different styles of shots.
Kapil Lund, Independent Living student, said: “Nature makes me feel calm, relaxed, not stressed or busy.” His classmate Holly Stansby commented: “I like doing artwork at Crane Park. I really enjoy taking pictures of nature.”
