Friday Smile

I’m not sure if this has a massive connnection to informal education but there is a real attempt to help the person discover the answer/learning for themselves. If you’ve ever been frustrated when someone failed to ‘get it’ or make the connection then you’ll probably enjoy this ………..
Sound file …….. “What did Sir Walter Raleigh bring back?”

Mission Impossible

If you are feeling creative I coulod do with some help.The next VERTIGO youth event is themed around ‘Justice’ working with a verse from Micah:
Micah 6:8 (New International Version)
8 He has showed you, O man, what is good.
And what does the LORD require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy
and to walk humbly with your God.

At the start of the evening we want to do a kind of ‘Mission Impossible’ thing along the lines of, “Your mission (should you choose to accept it) ………” But I am struggling to write a script for the voice over guy to record over the video that creatively expresses the call to Justice and Kingdom.
Any scribblings apreciated.

Community Photography

I visited a fantastic Youth and Community project yesterday on an Estate that has been through a lot of re-generation work and change. The community centre had had a complete re-build and included a dedicated youth room, meeting rooms, a shop and a community hall.
Around the walls were photos of members of the community young and old. The pictures, which looked fantastic, were the results of a great piece of work photographing key members of the community … and also recording some of the locations that would dissapear in the re-generation work. The photographs were all done by a professional photographer and produced on canvas frames.
I thought this was a fantastic piece of work in recognising key characters of the estate young and old, the conversations and stories that the piece of work produced AND the sense of ownership it created in the community centre.
