Stressing Out: our film for word 2015

STRESS: Islington Community Theatre and Word Festival 2015 from Mattia Pagura on Vimeo.

We're very proud to be part of the brilliant Word 2015 Festival - a celebration of reading, writing and freedom of expression, with a particular focus this year on mental health.

Our work for Word 2015 has revolved around an exploration of stress in teenagers.  We've been working with director Miranda Cromwell and writer Francesca Beard through a series of 12 investigatory workshops with young people aged 11-19, a public sharing at Platform and a new film (above) by the film-maker Mattia Pagura.

Word Festival 2015: Stress Intensive begins

We have begun work on STRESS: a new project exploring anxiety and pressure in young people and how that is communicated in the way young people receive and share information.

The project, directed by Miranda Cromwell with the playwright and poet Francesca Beard, is part of the Word Festival 2015 - a celebration of reading, writing and freedom of expression in Islington.  Young People from ICT and across the borough are coming together today and tomorrow to think, talk and write in Stress Intense, a two day half term project.

The Intense part of the project culminates in a short sharing tomorrow evening at 6pm at Platform.
