Hear Here includes some great footage and pictures of skateboarders, scooterers, free runners, dancers, gymnasts, plus lots of faces you will recognise. There’s also an installation of the interview with Roy Gollop, a much respected local person (clip) (press release) you will be able to hear soundbites and watch the interview on 27th.
“This is something completely different from anything we have ever done before and you don’t have to be a musician. It’s an open invitation to think outside the box, to create music and sound using the environment, interview local people, create beats, sing, film for projections, photograph and capture life as you see and hear it, culminating in a cutting edge installation of works and performance, transforming and breathing life back into The Hub that’s been closed for ten years or more”
Getting the Hub ready for this has been an exciting challenge and not possible without help from:
Partners: LRDT The Hub, Dorset County Youth Service, West Dorset Team, Pete Hackett , The Marine Theatre & Nigel, Woodmead Halls & Stan, Hub volunteers & Development Group, Graham Turner, Derek Hallett.
Hear Here is funded by Youth Music, West Dorset District Council & Lyme Regis Town Council.
Milena Nikolic, Director of the Youth Centre said;
“We were very excited to see that it’s all about peer education – young people doing it for themselves. The event was very experimental – in a really good way. Its creativity made us think about possibilities, how we could start a project like this in Srebrenica with our young people. Thank you BSharp – we all had a really great time!”
Youth Centre and cultural leaders from Srebrenica, Bosnia and Herzegovina visited The Hub during Simply Human, an 8 day cultural exchange residency, part of Wake Up an EU Cultural Programme developing youth leadership initiatives.
