Nature’s Nippers

Nature’s Nippers is an outdoor group for parents and pre-school children at PLOT 22, a community allotment garden. Its aim is to encourage youngsters to connect with the earth, watch things grow, and understand where our food comes from. It’s an opportunity for children to play, explore, and discover.

This short film was created for PLOT 22.

Finding A Voice

Connor, Jacob, and Andrew are three young men about to embark on a new phase in their lives. They are students at Doucecroft Further Education Department in Essex – a college for young people with autistic spectrum conditions.

This documentary explores the remarkable transformations that take place during their three years at ‘FE’ . We hear their reflections on the changes they have experienced, their thoughts and dreams as they prepare for the future. And we learn how it is through the transition from childhood to adulthood, that they have found their voice.

Produced for Doucecroft FE Department

We Are All Different; We Are All The Same

This audio documentary was commissioned by the Community Relations and Equality Board for Norfolk as part of an insight study into the day-to-day experiences and opinions of community tensions and ‘hate’ in Great Yarmouth.

This is a unique opportunity to listen to peoples’ lived experiences of being identified as different because of who they are. It captures perceptions and opinions on who or what they think is responsible for tensions in Great Yarmouth.  The documentary also captures the importance of connections between individuals and groups and how these can help break down barriers and diffuse tensions.

Produced for the Community Relations and Equality Board for Norfolk.

“Everything we do, everything we say, is a story”

Over the course of one summer, a series of workshops were hosted by PLOT 22, an allotment garden, exploring the craft of storytelling.

Stories are so integral to our experience of being human; they powerfully resonate with each and every one of us.

Immerse yourself in the stories that were created and told at the PLOT and be inspired to tell your own story.

This audio documentary was commissioned by N-ARRO (Norfolk Alliance for the Rehabilitation and Resettlement of Offenders) as part of an insight study into the experiences of rehabilitation pathways in Norfolk amongst people with offending histories.

This is a unique opportunity to hear the voices of those who have had contact with the criminal justice system. Hear them reflect deeply and personally on their experiences of the rehabilitation process.
