…because no one should slip through the net
A celebration of the achievements and potential of the young people of Stockton
Friday, September 29, 2006 / from 6pm to 8pm
Fish Supper is an engaging, creative and educational project designed to take young people through a process that will allow them to learn skills and put them into practice as part of a large scale event, funded through the Connexions Kick Start Programme and ran by tees valley arts and Twister Arts.
24 young people from Stockton have been taking part in a three week programme of training in the lead up to the event including Fishing and Cooking; Healthy Catering; Film and Photography; DJ’ing and MC’ing and technical event skills, (lighting, sound and staging). The young people have had inspirational day trips including sea fishing, visiting the IMAX Theatre at the National Museum of Film & Photography in Bradford and the catering group have visited Jamie Oliver’s fifteen restaurant in London which also works with disadvantaged young people.
The project will be celebrated at the Arc in Stockton on Friday 29th September from 6.00 pm until 8.00 pm.
Mike McGrother, Project Manager, commented
“the event will feature young people performing; award giving and The Wildcats of Kilkenny will bring the whole thing together. Food prepared and served by the 2 catering groups will be provided and the technical theatre side of things will be run by trainees. The backdrop for the whole evening will be provided by images and film produced by young people in that particular group.”
