Engagement workshops to produce
a series OF SOCIAL THEMED short-films
Relative View is a workshop Educational Engagement Project producing a series of three short-films - each presenting a group scenario examining the interaction between three different characters in the group. This gives a visual perspective of their points of view or 'relative view'.
PREMIER & EXHIBITION
We host a premier screening to showcase all the participants hard work, and to which they can invite some family and friends to join them in celebrating their achievements.
The films can also be used as a learning resource.
"Major benefits of using this project within the community is to explore the issues young people face. Often, family members, teachers or youth workers don’t have the opportunity to discover young people views."

• New transferable skills gained around planning a project, managing a project and presentation skills.

WHO'S IT FOR?
It can be designed for specific age groups or across generations, where understanding different points of view can be so beneficial in improving inter-generational relationships.
Different generations, with their respective different experiences can:
Provide an opportunity for both to learn new skills
Give the child and the older adult a sense of purpose
Help to alleviate fears children may have of the elderly
Help children to understand and later accept their own aging
Invigorate and energize older adults
Help reduce the likelihood of depression in the elderly
Reduce the isolation of older adults
Fill a void for children who do not have grandparents available to them
Help keep family stories and history alive
Aide in cognitive stimulation as well as broaden social circles should a youth introduce technology into the life a senior
"Young people are good at telling their stories and its good for the wider community to listen to them. This often doesn’t happen so projects like this are important."

relative view 2016
In the summer of 2016, The CBC undertook its Big Lottery Funded pilot-project for Relative View, in collaboration with Baxter College and Kidderminster District & Youth Trust.
We were delighted to work with three very different groups who all brought such different ideas to their short films. It was also interesting to find out what was important to different age groups as all subject matters were decided by themselves based upon role play and discussion.
We are proud of everyone's achievements, from those who had no prior experience, to those who had performed before.
A HUGE WELL DONE GUYS!

How do we perceive the ‘perfect’ body?
Are we influenced by society & media pressure? What are the lengths some will go to achieve this?
