Hackney’s first ever Resettlement and Aftercare Provision (RAP) Youth Arts programme. Designed by Free Form Arts Trust, in partnership with Hackney Youth Offending Team this year long course offers a variety of creative activities for local young people as part of the Youth Justice Board’s RAP initiative – introduced as a resettlement provision for young people in custody with specific misuse/ mental health difficulties.
The technology was made very accessible and straightforward through the use of specific user friendly programs. All the sound and footage was gathered at the end of the sessions using some of the planning time to make an archive of sound and visual material. This was then passed to a VJ to make a collective work that is to be screened at the party. The lack of emphasis on creating a final outcome was the key to success in these workshops and the willingness to be flexible and change planning according to circumstances.
