The Media Team

The Media Team was a training course that ran from June 2010 to May 2012. The team learned skills in film making, film editing, website design and reporting and presenting stories. They also created their own projects for Heart n Soul.

Since the course ended, the team have continued working with Heart n Soul reporting on a number of Heart n Soul projects and events including The Beautiful Octopus Club and the Chatterbox podcast featured on Heart n Soul radio.

I Did That

I Did That was a training course that ran from 2009-2011. Trainees learned skills that go in to producing events like The Beautiful Octopus Club. They learned skills in sound, lighting, stage management, digital technology, front of house.  They also gained work experience and went on work placements across arts venues in London including Little Angel Theatre Company, The Scoop, London Bubble Company, Greenwich and Docklands Festival and Southbank Centre.

The course has become a training model for others and we have shared our learning with partners, so that they can develop accessible training programmes. Since the course ended some of our trainees have gone on to get paid jobs.
