Sky is a specialist in creative education with a wealth of experience in participatory and collaborative filmmaking. Her work spans leading documentary workshops with MA students to creating animation projects with nursery children (and everything in-between- which sometimes involves dangling off trapezes).
Participatory filmmaking brings groups and communities together to create their own films or to be a significant part of the creative journey. It crosses generational, social and cultural divides, and is one of the most empowering ways to work with vulnerable or marginalised people. Participatory filmmaking is a powerful medium to empower, inspire and transform.
Satya films workshops are run by Sky in collaboration with a close team of professional filmmakers and experienced creative educators. Satya workshops can be tailored to any age group and setting, and they can be taster sessions or in-depth intensives resulting in a finished film. We provide a supportive and creative environment where participants can draw upon film, animation and music to explore and create.
Get in touch and Sky will be happy to work out a tailored education package to suit your organisation or group.
