This pilot project is about giving young people in G20 a platform to ‘Say Something’ they feel passionate about.
Participants will be devising, directing and producing their own short films supported by Street Cones facilitators, specialist skilled guests and individuals with lived experience. In their films they will be given the opportunity to ‘Say Something’ they feel passionate about. Via Glasgow Life they will also be eligible for CAA (Community Achievement Awards).
Emily Cutts G20 Project Leader said ‘We’ve enjoyed seeing how well the young people have engaged with Street Cones. They are co-creating a project with a shared vision. It will be a real boost seeing the progress films and then the end of the project films.’
Inspector Michael Fletcher from Police Scotland’s Partnerships Department said ‘We’re delighted to work with Street Cones again and support this pilot project at G20. It’s a unique way of listening to and helping the group express themselves using film.’
Asked about the project Chair of Street Cones board Tom Jackson said ‘A core belief of Street Cones is that everyone should be listened to. I am pleased to see this partnership is giving a voice to a group of young people who might otherwise feel they are not being heard.’
