200 young people gain new digital skills with Media Cubs during Easter holidays

Our team has had an egg-cellent Easter working with almost 200 kids around Greater Manchester.
We were busy transforming spaces such as classrooms and libraries into our exciting pop-up TV studio and newsroom, working with young people aged from 6-16.
These young people attending HAF holiday clubs (the government’s Holiday Activity and Food programme) had the opportunity to try their hand at stop-motion making and comic strip creation with us.
Both activities encourage creativity and story-making, alongside important digital skills.

Kirsty Day, Media Cubs project lead, said: “We’ve really enjoyed meeting so many new faces this Easter and are proud to be able to offer our unique activities so that young people can try something new, increasing both skills and confidence. 

“The stop-motion making went down a treat, it was great to see them enjoying the activities and producing something to be proud of… and there are definitely some future movie makers in Greater Manchester!”  

With thanks to our partners this Easter, Manchester Libraries, Made in Wigan Minis, Life Centre Salford, Life Leisure Stockport, Sale Sharks Community Trust, Our Sale West and Lancashire Cricket Club.
