Following an excellent trial with Goose Green Primary School, two secondary schools, a primary schools and Southwark’s SILS 3, the Peckham pupil referral unit, all committed to this Community TV Trust initiative which has been running throughout the autumn. The full London Young Voices project began in mid-September and will go through to early December 2009 with all work produced being exhibited in the new Peckham Space from April 2010. The project workshops were held over a ten week period, with video tutors working alongside staff both in curriculum and after school. At Peckham Academy local artist Ana Laura Lopez de la Torre will work with tutor Alison McCloskey and a teacher, exploring the theme of neighbour and neighbourhood.
Both Peckham Academy and St Michael And All Angels schools were visited last week by Mutah Beale aka Napoleon during his week long visit to Southwark. Various video reports are to be uploaded onto YouTube shortly.
