Creative Learning Centres
Northern Ireland Screen works in partnership with and provides funding for Northern Ireland’s three Creative Learning Centres (CLCs); the Nerve Centre
in Derry/Londonderry, Studio On
in Crossnacreevy and the Southern Education and Library Board’s AmmA Centre
All three centres deliver programmes for schools and young people in the use of new creative digital technologies. A key element to the services provided is professional development programmes for teachers and youth leaders.
Northern Ireland Screen provides funding from DCAL
to enable the centres to offer a range of integrated programmes to build sustainability in schools and the youth sector.
Renewing Communities Intergenerational Film Project
From April 2006 to March 2008 Northern Ireland Screen worked in partnership with Studio On, Creative Learning Centre, on an Intergenerational Film Project in North Belfast as part of the government’s Renewing Communities programme. The project sought to provide technical, artistic and educational experiences to allow intergenerational community groups in North Belfast to use digital technology to examine aspects of local history through viewing archive film and to respond creatively by making short films on a topic provoked by what they had learned.
An independent evaluation of three separate Renewing Communities projects, including the Intergenerational Film Project, was carried out by Independent Research Solutions and can be downloaded from this page.
