This project was a collaboration between the young people who attend the Liverpool Arabic Centre, Liverpool Arab Arts Festival, FACT, Mersey Care & Alder Hey. It was funded by Eleanor Rathbone Charitable Trust.
The project aims to give young people the chance to explore their identity within society through filmmaking. We believe that by giving young people the chance to celebrate and explore their own culture as well as others can improve confidence, social cohesion and mental health and well being.
