We were delighted to be part of ‘Fit for the Future’ the first Ted-X Sherborne event held in May. We were fortunate to gain funding from West Dorset Council to produce a music video for a song written and produced for the event by Ru Clarke, one of our talented young centre users. Titled, ‘What Good is Youth?’ it highlighted the tension that exists between young and old particularly when living in a place full of history and a large older population and the need to push back and ‘come through’ with their own voice. The song was very well received and we are very proud of our young people.
The event was held in the newly opened Sherborne Girls Arts Centre and we also took a stand which gave us the opportunity to talk and meet lots of new people and tell them about our work – and recruit one or two new tutors as well!
Thanks and congratulations go to the Ted-X team – we’re already planning our contribution to the next event!
