I missed the beginning of Pirate Day 2016, but for excellent reasons. I was at Canterbury Christ Church University in Chatham, running a workshop for young people about the Creative Industries.
An amazing morning working with young people as part of the National citizen Service. I found out what young people love, enjoy and would like to do (Music, Theatrical Make up …) and how the Backstage Centre could support them in gaining skills to be a part of a multi million pound industry. We discussed and ranked skills that employers are looking for, then created story/mood boards for campaigns to raise the awareness of the creative industry with other teens in the community.
If we had more time, I’m sure a lot of the planning would translate into excellent campaigns that could be run in local communities.
