Work Experience Project: Young Researchers/Advisers/Film-makers
26-29 October 2020

Gain fantastic skills and experience this half term. We need 5 young people (aged 15-19) to create a film representing the views and perspectives of young people.

Our client is Lambeth Council. You will capture views of young people and help influence the Council’s plans for Brockwell Hall. This is fantastic work experience and you’ll have an impact on your community. You will work in collaboration with We Rise coaches and Cameraman to decide the content of the film, engage young people, ask them questions and direct the shots

You will receive up to £70 in vouchers (for attending all the sessions). Working times are: Monday afternoon (1-4pm) and all day on Wednesday and Thursday (10am-4pm). There will also be an online session to view the finished film.

The project is based in Brockwell Hall and Park. You will be following social distancing guidelines at all times.

October Half Term Engagement Activities in Brockwell Park

If you are under 19 years old and you live near Brockwell Park we want to hear from you. Our young advisers will be in the park talking to young people on and off camera on Wednesday and Thursday. We’d love to hear your ideas and suggestions for what you want. What is missing? What would bring more girls into the park? What would make BME young people feel more welcome?

Please come along to one of these activities, or get in touch with us direct.

We look forward to seeing you!

Memories of Brockwell Hall and Brockwell Park. What memories do parents and grandparents have of the park and the hall? Do you have any records of events or photographs from the past?
