Life After Lockdown

An insight into your perspective on what life and school might look like after lockdown.

What?
As a group we will work to create a script and bring together your artistic responses to weekly themes. You might decide to record your lines from the script in a video form, or create a film, short performance or spoken word. artsdepot will then edit the videos together each week which you can share.  

Why? 
We want to hear young people’s voices about your experience of lockdown and what is might be like going back to school. We want to understand your experience. 

We want to support young people to develop resilience and creative skills during this time of change and help them feel equipped to transition into their next stage of education and life in light of the pandemic.  

How? 
Every Monday in the summer holidays from Mon 27 Jul a lead artist will lead an online session on Zoom with up to 12 participants. 

Who?
Although we know every young person’s experience has been different and is equally important, we want to hear from pupils who are going into years 8 - 10.
