Back in August, we held a Plantation Party for young people at the North Coast Integrated College, Coleraine. You can find more out about the party here
During the afternoon, the young people chose between 2 activities.
Some got involved in making a rap. Young film-maker, Daniel Gough, recorded some of the highlights of this activity and turned them into a short film (the one above!) The film shows some of the rehearsals of our Plantation Rap and a short performance at the end. They achieved all this in less than 2 hours : so the young people involved can be really proud of themselves!
Others got involved in designing artwork for a 17th century graffiti wall. This wall is an on-going art project being facilitated by Lorna Gough at the North Coast Integrated College. Progress has been encouraging since August.
The following pictures were taken in December 2013 and show the group’s “practice wall” (students had to learn how to use spray paint, how to make stencils and and apply paint to stencils) and the “actual wall”.
