About this Event
The Diaspora Multimedia Hub is a creative collaboration between ISRAAC Somali Community Association, Sheffield Hallam University and Eryal TV. We are very excited to announce that the DMH will be launching a Creativity Club this March which aims to provide a creative outlet for young people during lockdown. The project is completely free and will take place online via Zoom.
The Creativity Club will consist of 4 Zoom sessions in total from Monday 8th March to Friday 26th March. Participants will be allocated a £50 budget to create anything they want, and record a short video diary of their creative process.
Who is it for?
We are looking for 16-25 who want to explore their creativity in lockdown. No experience needed!
What will we do?
You will have 7 days to create a piece of work that explores your creativity in lockdown. You can create anything – we encourage you to be as imaginative as possible!
For example, a collage, a piece of writing, a makeup look, a short film, photography, an audio piece or soundscape, a sculpture/model, a painting, a T-shirt design etc. Anything which explores your creativity in lockdown.
Participants will be allocated a budget of £50 for equipment and materials needed to create their piece.
Week 1 – Planning – writing a 1-page brief of your creative idea including a list of materials needed.
Week 2 – Creating!
Week 1 will run from the 8th to 15th March.
