The 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.

Thought out January and February Ealing’s top young journalists have been taking part in interactive news gathering workshops at Ealing City Learning Centre . With deadlines looming and the pressure on, the young people worked together in teams to produce news reports which reflected the days news through the eyes of a teenager.
The workshops formed part of BBC News Report Day which took place on 11th March 2010.
Seven schools took part in School Report 2010. These were : Acton High School,Brentside High School, Ellen Wilkinson School for Girls, Elthorne Park High School, Twyford CE High School, Villiers High School and West London Academy
Over the past 4 months young people living on the Maiden Lane Estate in Camden have been working with the TWC Team, taking pictures which encapsulate the vibrancy and spirit of their community centre. A selection of the photos will be printed and hung in the main hall of the centre, a shared space for all the local community .
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.
