Fio:Futures Young Company
We’re currently working on our Fio:Futures Autumn Programme, to be held at East Moors Youth Centre as weekly sessions! Once we have all the details, please check back in soon. Remember - you heard it first here!
Meanwhile, take a quick look at what we have been up to this summer:
Fio:Futures’ Film Summer School!
Just a week after the talent show, ‘Fio Presents: Cardiff’s Got Talent’, Fio:Futures launched a 3-week Film Summer School at East Moors which kicked off on 22nd July 2019 for 11-19 year olds! By the end of it, we had worked together to create a short film based on ideas and issues that the young people discussed a week prior to filming.
Soon enough, the young people will be invited back in for a special premiere screening!
The programme was kindly supported by Arts Council Wales, Ffilm Cymru, Cardiff County Council.
Fio has invested in young people for the past six years in the running of our prior summer schools.
Fio:Futures was launched in Splott in 2018 at The Old Library and East Moors Youth Centre. Our aim is to re-represent the young community of Splott. We aim to give a platform to those growing up in contemporary South Wales to tell their own stories. Participants have noted increase in self-confidence, a creative outlet, the learning of new skills, no judgement, connecting and making new friends.
