Unseen Voices

Created by Sergio López Figueroa in partnership with Brent Council and delivered by Big Bang Lab, Unseen Voices is an interdisciplinary outreach project aiming to engage young people and the community through creative participatory practice using film archives, photographs and live original music. The project helps to create awareness of the importance of remembrance, commemoration, peacekeeping and human rights in today´s world. The main output is to connect historical and contemporary issues such as discrimination, racism and gang violence by looking at the past and creating a debate among students, teachers and the community.

In two-week workshops a group of music students learn the history of the second World War, the Holocaust and Kindertransport (youth refugees in 1939) by learning how to create a film entirely by re-using archive film footage and photography and editing digitised clips, learn where and how to research, copyright issues, make the storyboard and the film, compose the music with support of Music Leader and finally perform live at the Holocaust Memorial Day with the Unseen Voices film in Wembley Town Hall in January 2008.
At a second stage, an educational DVD was produced as a learning resource and distributed to 100 schools in the Borough including four mini documentaries of the whole process and further resources including web resources for the use of teachers and other schools.

You can also find a description of the project in the Showcase on the MEDEA Awards website http://www.medea-awards.com/showcase/unseen-voices.
