ARC, with support from Connexions Tees Valley, is working with 12 young people from the Bishopton Centre in Stockton on a two-week workshop. The workshop will explore issues affecting these young people and look at the social cultural and economic reasons behind life choices.
Working with Dougie Pincott of The Verb Garden they will produce a gritty narrative structure in the form of poetry. The group will work with ARC artists in residence, VISAr, to turn the poem into a hard hitting animation, which will feed into the Animex Street and TeenToons show reels. The animation will be screened at ARC and around the region as part of Animex Street, and will also feature at Animex Teen Toons event at the University of Teesside.
