Voice Collective has teamed up with the filmmakers at Fitzrovia Youth in Action (FYA) to offer you the opportunity to write, produce and direct your own short film about what it’s like to live with voices, visions or other sensory experiences. These films will be hosted on the Voice Collective and FYA websites and Youtube channels. They’ll also be shown in schools and youth organisations to raise awareness of hearing voices, helping other young people in distress.
You’ll have the freedom and control to tell your personal story in your own way, whether that’s through documentary filming, drawing/painting, computer animation or otherwise – the possibilities are endless! We know it’s a really big thing to share your story with the world, so we can explore lots of creative ways to protect your identify if you’d prefer to make your film anonymously.
The workshops will be held over 6 evening sessions in September and October at our office at Mind in Camden, but we can be flexible with the programme and you needn’t have to attend every session to be able to make your film. There will be an optional film screening celebration at the end, where you can choose to share your film with anyone you wish to see it.
The Voice Collective team (Eve and Lucy) will be on hand at every session, to chat through any worries or to give support if things are feeling difficult. If you’ve got any questions about the programme you can get in touch with us on firstname.lastname@example.org or 020 7911 0822, or visit the Eventbrite page to book.
