About this event

Sat Jan 12 – Sun Feb 24, 2013
Daily 12 noon – 9pm

“Take me to London!” is a creative media project in which hundreds of young people have learnt new skills in film-making and digital storytelling. Take me to London! encourages young people aged 13-19 to explore new parts of the city and produce films and digital stories about their visits. It brings together perspectives from many different communities, backgrounds and abilities and is inclusive, flexible, challenging and creative.

This year participants will be given the opportunity to gain a Bronze Arts Award which is a nationally recognised Level 1 vocational qualification.

The films and digital stories created in 2012, follow five groups of young people as they visited Kensington Palace, Tate Modern, the Museum of Childhood, The London Transport Museum and the Victoria & Albert Museum. The films are at once humorous, disbelieving, respectful and inspiring.

This year the participating groups and their Film Trainers are:

  • Brentford School for Girls                      Kim Koeman
  • A.P.P.L.E. Play, Ealing                              Kim Koeman
  • Barnhill School, Hillingdon                     Aoife Twomey
  • The Sahan Centre, Hillingdon                Aoife Twomey
  • The Study Centre, Ealing                        Aoife Twomey

All the films can be seen HERE

The film trainers were Kim Koeman and Aoife Twomey and the Arts Award advisors were Kim Koeman and Shan Rixon. Model design by Rachael Smith and illustrations by Maggie Li.
Take me to London! conceived by Watermans and produced by Watermans and Chocolate Films.


Watermans would like to thank the Heathrow Communities Trust for their support of Take me to London in 2012
