Home Is Where The Heart Is
“Home Is Where The Heart Is” is a project with the aim of giving a voice to isolated individuals aged 55 and over, through the telling of their stories and involving them in participatory arts activities to write songs, create music (or another piece of artwork) that illustrate their stories. The project will involve creating a musical soundscape or other art form and being part of a radio documentary. The project will be facilitated by Diane Gray and Ben Hudson from Community Arts Project North East (incorporating Hive Radio), who have considerable project management; art development; radio, recording and audio editing experience. The project will document the stories and memories of individuals from the local populations of the North East and who are in some way isolated within their community. The stories will be developed into songs or other artwork and the individuals involved will have opportunities, through a series of workshops, to improvise the playing of instruments/singing/vocalising in order to create a soundscape or other piece of art, which will run through and between the songs.

We have been working with the children of year 5 at Simonside Primary School in Jarrow. The theme for this term has been "How Far Will Your Imagination Take You" and the children have been using Roald Dahl's 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory' as their starting point. They wrote the scripts themselves and each took on a role in producing the above video. It has been a great experience and the children and staff were amazing.
