Low Brow Trash Education

There are two areas of education work that Low Brow Trash can provide; education in the use of new technologies as a creative tool and education in creative processes/creation of artwork.

These two elements are generally presented hand in hand and it is important to create or identify the main focus of the workshop.

Low Brow Trash have experience of creating workshops for a wide variety of clients and educative experiences including, schools, colleges, universities, and have had success in developing projects for young people involved in the criminal justice system or those deemed 'socially excluded'. This has included work with Youth Offending Teams and extended or alternative provision.

Low Brow Trash can develop workshops for the need of the client and can focus on a number of areas, digital manipulation, film, animation, and creative processing. The company are CRB (Criminal Records Bureau) checked and can provide OCN (Open College Network) qualification management.

Evidence

CELL project was conceived by Low Brow Trash in 2003 and was a collaboration between the company, Nottingham Youth Offending Team and The Galleries of Justice. Funding was secured through RALP and the project worked with up to 25 young people, referred through YOT, on a series of creative/new technology workshops utilising still image, film and computer generated music. The project culminated in an exhibition of the work in four unused holding cell spaces at the Galleries of Justice museum.

The project was deemed highly successful by Nottingham YOT and the positive effect it had on the young people involved.
