Chance for youngsters to be creative

Young people get the chance to have starring roles in an innovative year-long arts and drama project that starts at Freebrough Community College at Brotton on Tuesday, October 16.

Independent film director Ronak Singh will co-ordinate regular Tuesday after school sessions, entitled Act On It!, to create short films based on issues and topics chosen by the students.

It will be the first project in a packed Creative Links programme, devised by Redcar and Cleveland Council's Arts Development and Extended Schools units for young people who have a creative dream but don't know where to make it a reality.

Students at Laurence Jackson School, Guisborough will enjoy taster sessions on Thursday and Friday, October 25 and 26 for another of the exciting schemes, Boom Dang. This gives 11-18 year olds the chance to learn the skills of Boom Dang drumming and street and contemporary dance.

To find out more, contact project officer Lisa Bean on 01642 496424 or e-mail.
