During the October half term, PARC worked with author Nathaniel Tomlinson and film-maker St. Child to provide a three-day creative writing and film-making workshop at Northolt Village Community Centre. Children aged between 8 and 12, along with their parents, explored characterisation, film-making and editing to create short films based on their personal stories.
Eight year old Melody said, “I really liked it and it is very interesting. Lovely amazing filming.”
Eleven year old Taylor said, “It was even more fun when we were able to do the editing.”
Ade Banjoko, chair of PARC, commented on the aims of the workshop, “We wanted to provide children with an opportunity to challenge negative stereotypes concerning Black children and youth and tell their own very personal stories about life in London.”
