  Not at home: Re-engaing Young People with their Community

Organisation

Cultural Development Network

Project Description

Young people, who often find themselves at the margins of society, are the focus of an innovative community arts project that will be piloted in the heart of Melbourne in 2001 - 2002.

The project is the result of a partnership between the Cultural Development Network (Vic), BIGhART, and the City of Melbourne. It has been generously sponsored by VicHealth and the Lance Reichstein Trust.

Working in collaboration with BIG hART's diverse team of professional film artists, young participants in the NOT AT HOME project will make a film interpreting their experience of being (or not being) 'at home'. A key element of the project's creative and community development process is a focus on relationships between young people, their families and their community.

Participants will be supported to write, perform, and produce a high quality film telling their stories. The material developed through the project will form the Victorian component of a national film. Last year's BIGhART film - Hurt (produced in regional NSW) has been widely acclaimed in both the arts and social justice fields, and has won many awards - notably, an AFI Award and several Commonwealth Heads of Government Violence Prevention Awards.

While the film is the tangible outcome of the project it is by no means its main objective. Fundamental to this project's philosophy and goals is the legacy it aims to leave behind in the lives of participants and their communities. Its aftermath is at least as important as its creative process
- that is to re-engage marginalised young people with their community.

Phillip Crawford and Kim McConville (BIGhART), Jane Crawley, (City of Melbourne), Judy Spokes (Cultural Development Network )
