In Production

Big Up Films has been awarded a grant from the Evening Standard Dispossessed Fund to run an urban art and filmmaking workshop 'Watch Our Space' on the Notre Dame Estate in South London. The project will be launched on Thursday 8 November 2012 and will run until the summer of 2013. Working with local artists and Big Up, teenagers will be making street art and a film, meeting once a week on Thursdays in the community centre.

We are currently in collaboration with Morley College's Community Learning Programme to deliver a filmmaking workshop with adults who have been previously homeless. They have written a drama script about homelessness which sets to challenge the stereotype of people living in the street.

We have been commissioned by Communities First to run workshops in youth centres including Concorde Youth Centre in Hackney, Phipps Bridge Youth Club in Merton and St John the Divine Youth Project in Earlsfield. We have also been commissioned by First Light in the Classroom to work with a group of young people from Bracknell Youth Offending Service.
