Horn of Africa Community Group ROCKS!

logoThe Horn of Africa Community Group in Shepherds Bush is an amazing space for young people in W12. The young people from the centre developed ideas, wrote  and produced a performance piece  called Changing Faces which was presented at the Riverside Studios in May 2009.

Together We Create ran a number of film making workshops and supported the team in the creation of the film.

Hounslow Wii-lympics Coming to a School near you!

Hounslow Wii-lympic Logo Proposed

The Hounslow Wii-lypmics is a project designed for all schools in the London Borough of Hounslow; primary, secondary and special schools, created to get young people involved in sport through the use of fun technology.

The children who take part in the project will learn how people become top athletes; how they prepare their diet, how they look after their bodies and how they present themselves in the media.  The children will work in small groups to research a particular area of the athletes life as either the trainer, dietician, physiotherapist, the PR Manager of the athlete itself.  The children will submit their ideas to a judging panel by Easter 2010. The schools that have submitted the best ideas and research will qualify for the Wii lympics final at Hounslow Civic Centre on 3rd and 4th July 2010 , where the team athletes will get the chance to play against other schools.
