Twelve young people aged between 10 and 18 are needed to work with three professional artists to make a new installation for the British Schools Museum in Hitchin. This is a free three-day mixed arts project involving dance, film and music. It's happening during the February half term, 12th-14th February 2018. Get in touch now to secure your place!
We are looking for 12 young people aged 10–18 to work with professional artists, including makeAMPLIFY dancer Jennifer Irons and audio-visual artist Zach Walker, to make a new installation for the British Schools Museum in Hitchin this half term.
The project will include movement/dance and sound/film recordings to explore the heritage behind mobile phone functions. The artists will use your movements and the film footage you capture to create a film installation that will be set up in the museum for the general public to visit!
