MUSIC VIDEO PROJECT

 

Join the Youth of Bicester (aka The YOB) on their summer project and create a music video inspired by Baz Luhrmann’s - Everybody's Free To Wear Sunscreen.  

 

Week 1: Work with The YOBs and a professional musician to write lyrics, create a backing track and record a song (you don’t need to able to play an instrument but if you do bring it along). The song will explore how the community perceives young people based the advice and comments often directed at them. It will aim to tell the story of what it means to be a young person growing up in this ever growing town.

 

Week 2: Work with The YOBs around Bicester to film, edit and direct a movie montage to produce a music video for the song.  The single will be released at The YOBs diversity celebratory event.

LGBTQ+

What’s it to you?

Sat 25th Aug 2018, 1pm - 7pm @ Studi02

 

Activities On the Day:  Live Music Performances and karaoke to finish Performance and creative workshop Flag Making – Run by the Yobs Pizza and Bouncy castle

 

Why the Youth of Bicester have chosen to undertake this project: Because we feel there is demand locally. Because it is important to give people the chance to learn about something new. It is important to make sure that everyone is included and welcome in our community. To use the information to create a piece of art which will help people to further understand  what it means to identify as LGBTQ+ in the future.

 

The event aims to:   Offer the LGBTQ+ community in and around Bicester a safe place to celebrate their community. Offer a place for LGBTQ+ people and the wider community the opportunity to gain information about issues relating LGBTQ+. Build a LGBTQ+  support network . Use art to help people engage with LGBTQ+ issues. Give people the chance to explore what LGBTQ+ means to them.

 

Who are the Yobs? The Youth Of Bicester are a youth action team (aged 12-21)  who aim to inspire, provoke thought and start conversations within the community of Bicester through the arts.
