Our Values’ Project

‘Our Values’ Intergenerational project has brought together young people from Churchill Community College, North Tyneside Libraries and North Tyneside Voda to work together on an innovative inter-generational project.

The young people and the adults have discussed, explored and shared ideas about communities, and what makes them work and what makes an ideal community and in this way identified values which are important to create a positive community.  A key part of the project has been to use visual media as a means of portraying which values are the most important to the group. The chosen values have provided a basis for the production of four short animations and four pull-up banners which will be displayed around local community venues.  Furthermore, a documentary has been made to accompany the project which will be released very soon

They have made me think about values from a different perspective”.  Autumn Year 7
