Young Content Creators, Undercurrent

We are commissioning five Young Content Creators (aged 16-30) to work alongside our Digital Producer to research, capture and edit a digital output (film, photography or audio) to be included in the Undercurrent Digital Archive, and shared at a public event in June 2024.

Undercurrent is built upon the ambition for a project to honour Luton’s heritage of activism and music sub-cultures and to connect working-class stories along the River Lea – from its source in Leagrave, journeying through Hertfordshire and Enfield, past the Olympic Park in Newham to where it meets the River Thames at the Royal Docks. Starting at Marsh Farm, the project will document and interpret the related past of this significant locations and their historic gatherings of people – from the myths and legends of prehistory to punk parties in the location’s Nissen hut. During the research phase, we will be undertaking a range of activities to discover and document histories associated to both the river and the themes of activism, working class narratives and histories of sub-cultures and alternative communities.

The Young Content Creators will be commissioned to work alongside our Digital Producer to produce a piece of digital content that tells ones of these stories, working through a process of storyboarding, directing, filmmaking, audio capture and video/audio editing. They will also learn skills in digital accessibility, research and community engagement.

The deadline for applications is 9am Monday 22 April 2024.

Undercurrent is supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, Arts Council England and Bloomberg Philanthropies.
