Project Partners: The Song Room
Project Date: December 2013
About the Project:
Storyscape facilitated a participatory video workshop with Grade Six students at Sacred Heart Primary School in Fitzroy. The students were part of the Harmony in Strings program for three years, from 2011 to 2013. During this time, the students had learned to play stringed instruments and worked together to compose, improvise, collaborate and present musical performances. Storyscape worked with The Song Room to evaluate the program, asking students to create short films and storyboards about their experience with the program. The students wrote, directed and filmed two participatory videos in three hours. The films were later edited by Storyscape, with final sign off given by the students.
