Rita Angus Short Film Project 2012

We are delighted to be partnering with Ryman Healthcare to deliver a drama project for elderly residents of Rita Angus retirement village.  We are working with 12 participants and they have chosen to create a short film exploring the impact of moving into residential care.  Watch this space for a link to the finished film, due for release in November.

Refugee Film Project 2012

Each year Voice Arts Trust delivers a drama-based refugee youth project.  This year, in partnership with ChangeMakers Refugee Forum and with support from UNESCO, the focus has been on ‘the positive contributions that people with refugee backgrounds make to family, community and society’.  Eight young people were supported to explore ideas of who they are inspired by and who they are proud of in their community.  Each chose one person to create a narrative, poem or drama about and these eight stories are being weaved together into a short film approx 8 minutes in duration.  The cultural make up of the group was Somali, Sudanese, Afghani and Colombian.
