Band History Project
A number of young people from bands connected with the forum have started work on a project which aims to capture stoires and memories from people connected with bands in the city. Over the next couple of months the young people will be hoping to interview band members past and present to record their answers to questions they have came up with.
This project was run in 2015 with great results capturing some amazing stories and memories showing what an impact being a member of a band has on people lifes. It also helps to develop the young peoples skills in a number of different areas including interview skills and camera skills.
The young people involved take control of this project developing the questions, setting up the camera, asking the questions and editing the footage afterwards with assistance from Forum Staff. It is also a great opportunity for the young people to learn more about the history of their own band and to meet older members from other bands and learn new things about the band scene.
