Community TV Trust [CTVT] specialises in local media. Since 1999 it has given training to people of all ages and abilities, facilitating vision and production. It also produces films, educational DVDs, and organises events. It campaigns and through its founder, Chris Haydon, gives talks and papers at conferences, seminars and educational events.
Media’s real power lies beyond the mainstream. When you link the media made with the life lived, media’s real potential is realized, its potential for serving the individual and society.
CTVT has no core funding and welcomes donations, volunteers and corporate enquiries regarding project sponsorship.
Its purpose is represented by its largest web-based project, “Southwark.TV” [www.southwark.tv], which in turn gave rise to CTVT’s definition of local media in The Southwark Template: WEB-EVENT-TV. This came directly from the practice and management “Southwark.TV” (Click here for the archived site).
Over the years we have worked intensively in Southwark in south London, and also spent many happy years linked to the disability community and mental health sector. We have led media training and filmmaking projects galore, both facilitated film drama projects with young people typically and from time to time our own commissioned documentary productions.
Key clients from a long list have been Cavendish School in Bermondsey, Southwark
… Freewheelers Theatre & Media Company – an inclusive disability arts company …
… Movement Factory
… Mental Fight Club – an innovative organisation founded by the late and very special Sarah Wheeler, and Southwark Council – for whom we have produced films, promotional videos and several large educational DVD projects on subjects such as Knife Crime, Islam in Southwark and Healthy Eating.
