Media support for the Holborn Community Association

CZWG has donated computers to the Holborn Community Association in support of their Digital Media Project and Media Arts Club programmes for children and young people aged 8 - 18 years.

The programmes offer a range of free digital and film activities, courses and outings which aim to build creative skills, instil confidence and to inspire career aspirations. Funded by BBC Children in Need and John Lyon's Charity, the programmes also seek to connect young people, many from disadvantaged backgrounds, and to encourage tolerance, foster belonging and to strengthen community ties.

“CZWG’s gifted computers have totally enhanced our digital media offering. We’ve installed Adobe Creative Cloud which has enabled us to teach valuable new technical and creative skills using a professional and efficient setup,” said Chloë Plumb, the HCA Media Arts coordinator.

“Most recently, our Media Arts Club participants have used Photoshop and After Effects to make digital artworks and motion graphics animations and young filmmakers on our Summer Film Project (a partnership project with Somerset House), have been using Adobe Premiere to edit a short documentary exploring identity which is going to be screened at Bloomsbury Festival."
