Current and past projects

Here are some of our current and past projects.

 A group of students at Mellor Community Primary School made the animations. All had difficulties with literacy and speaking skills and a few spoke very little English.

We were commissioned by the University of Leicester to make a film aimed at parents and family friends to encourage them to do activities with young children to get them counting.

The group got involved with all stages of film production including the acting.Family Flavour is a comedy drama which looks at generational expectations within Leicester’s Asian communities.

Over the summer of 2002 we worked with Friends of Melbourne Street Garden to refurbish the garden which we had helped to create four years previously.

In the summer of 2004, about 200 trees were cut down at a site in Beaumont Leys known as Beaumont Walk, to improve access and visibility as part of the ‘Safe Neighbourhoods’ scheme. 

The Shoot! magazine and podcasts are peer education resources about gun and knife crime. Most of the young people who contributed had been involved in these types of crimes themselves, as perpetrators or victims.
