We would like you to invite you to meet some of our 2021 Norfolk & Norwich Festival artists, in these special video interviews. This trailer video is a gateway to many more full interviews with Festival artists, where they tell you all about themselves, their art form, their inspirations, give advice and talk about their careers. Each artist sets a Creative Challenge for you to try yourself linked to their art form and the work they do. Please give some of them a try and share what you do or create with us, either on social media by tagging @nnfest or email to Creative Learning Manager Sarah.Witcomb@nnfestival.org.uk These videos are also perfect for supporting an Arts Award or Artsmark journey, so please enjoy and make use of these great resources.
The Conscious Consumers project enables young people to explore topical issues that span the boundaries of agriculture, food and society. Focussing on three topics (plant-based diets, food miles and personalised nutrition) use the resources to consider what it means to be a conscious consumer and think about how the choices we make everyday impact on the environment and our wellbeing.
Who is it for? This project is open to independent learners and schools and we invite young people aged 13 – 19 and teachers to download the PowerPoint presentations and activity documents for free. While the resources were made with year 9 PSHE students in mind, we feel the project is of general interest to young people and in a school setting, would make a valuable addition to several areas of the curriculum.
