Meres and Mosses Creative and Digital Interpretation Project

 

The Meres & Mosses Landscape Partnership Scheme are working with Media Active, based at Wem Town Hall to explore new ways of developing interpretative materials whilst engaging young people with their local heritage and landscape. The project focuses on countryside walks through sites of scientific interest in North Shropshire within the Meres and Mosses area.

Media Active work experience team

To date, the project has worked with children and young people from across Shropshire. Students have been recruited from schools and colleges including Whixall Primary School and Thomas Adams College, Wem. In addition, there have been 2 work experience production teams with 20 young recruits interested in journalism and media arts production, involving students from Shrewsbury 6th Form College and Sir John Talbot's Whitchurch year 10s.

So far, a total of 17 sessions, with a total of 210 attendances have taken place and lots more is planned!
