Funding Body/Client: ESF/Shooting Fish Theatre Company

Goals: To increase employability amongst participants by developing new technical skills and building on interpersonal ones

Shooting Fish Theatre Company ran a series of workshops with two groups of young unemployed adults in Gainsborough, culminating in the writing of two radio plays. The groups went into a professional recording studio where they performed their parts, then David Brook from Blueprint: Film Foundation ran an audio editing workshop with the group where they started to piece the recordings together to form the final plays.

These edits were then taken away and completed by Blueprint: Film Foundation, ready for a premiere event where the groups success was celebrated, helping boost confidence and self-esteem.

The project was designed to give participants the skills, both technical and interpersonal, to have the confidence and know-how to be able to get into (or return to) employment.
