What is Ariel Trust?
Ariel Trust is an independent charity committed to bringing multimedia and the opportunities it has to offer, within the reach of young people.
The charity, based in Gostins Building on Hanover Street, has been working with young people across the region for more than 25 years to develop communication skills, creativity and confidence.
What is Media For The Digital Age?
The project is free to attend and runs for two days a week (usually Tuesday and Wednesday 10am – 4pm) for an initial 8 weeks.
There will be an option for some students to attend further sessions after this time.
What will you be doing?
The project is all ‘hands-on’ so you will be recording and editing digital audio, interviewing, researching and exploring how the media use video, photography and online in a multimedia environment to produce their interactive services.
Your work will form the basis of dynamic, interactive learning resources which will engage young people and help make a difference to their lives. The best students have the opportunity to take part in our apprenticeship programme, working alongside Ariel staff creating educational products used in schools throughout the country.
