Firstly we would like to wish you all a belated Happy New Year from all at Your Ideas!
Secondly we would like to share some of our highlights from 2012…
…A series of short Digital Stories produced by members of Your Ideas Redditch on the subject of Sex and Relationships.
As some of you may already know we received funding from Worcestershires Health Improvement Fund to increase opportunities for local youngsters to take part in positive activities. This enabled us to run taster sessions with young people doing graffiti, sports, art, games and much more. We incorporated Sex and Relationships Education into these fun activities and additionally created our own SRE resource in the form of a DVD with film maker Chris Bradley.
The DVD resource holds 3 short Digital Stories, each an incredibly open, brutally honest and deeply intimate interview with 3 of our members looking at their opinions on Sex and Relationships. Aimed at youngsters it is the perfect antidote to the often cliche’ ‘how to wear a condom’ and ‘don’t have sex until you are at least 40’ style DVD’s created for the under 16 market.
Instead of giving ready formed polished opinions and facts to the audience, it will challenge them to form their own opinions. The aim is to use the DVD as a discussion point to encourage youngsters to talk openly about Sex and Relationships in safe, nonjudgemental environment with adults and or peers that they trust.
We are currently planning the next steps of how we are going to develop and distribute the resource so look out for updates!
