Lifecycle was part of the easi programme and offered pupils in Tees Valley schools the opportunity to explore environmental issues and develop their own creativity at the same time.
They worked with a professional musician and a poet to create new music, utilising recycled materials. The eventual performance piece was delivered through a hand built, pedal-powered sound system.
The sound system building team demonstrated how the pedal-powered system worked, and engaged with the students to explore other forms of renewable energy.
Lifecycle shows that a creative process, coupled with an effective product can have a lasting impact on the confidence, esteem and ideas of children. Working with adaptable creative artists alongside technical expertise in an unusual context can make the smallest idea grow into a phenomenal and powerful message.
