Artspace Youth Arts Programme
Artspace Cinderford’s digital arts department has been growing for the last eight years, developing video work and undertaking projects in schools.
In 2005 a group of young people came to us who wanted to make a film about zombies in the Forest and the seeds of a new project were sown. In July 2006 Forest Forward, our digital/film project, was launched with a screening at the Palace Cinema as part of that year’s Youth Arts Fringe Festival.
The group continued to meet on Thursday evenings at the New Mercury and over the last two years we have brought in other local film practitioners and story tellers to assist us in teaching script writing, how to make digital stories and creating animations.
Artspace has had a traditional black and white darkroom since our early years in the hut. We still believe that if you really want to learn about photography, composition, the use of light etc. then black and white is the place to start…..and nothing can match the fun of seeing your negs emerging in the developing tray!
