Below are two links to footage taken at our Children's Centre, these projects were funded by the Family Learning organisation - Lambeth City Learning:
Dads Photography Project - Our dads photography course ran for six weeks on a Tuesday afternoon, the dad's developed their photography skills and learnt about digital photography editing to put together their own photo book supported by a professional photographer. The group visited Brixton market with their children to take pictures of local life in our vibrant market as part of the project.
Jessop Children's Centre Film Project – This was a six week film project for parents to capture what we do at the children's centre through the eyes of the parents and children who use it. Parents developed interview skills, learnt how to film and edit and got a chance to be interviewed for the film.
