Go ahead for 'entente cordial' project

Posted: 02/02/2007 22:12:10

An exciting new project linking 20 young people from West Oxfordshire with 20 young people from France has been given the go-ahead.

The project will bring together Chipping Norton School with La Maison des Jeunes et de la Culture, a youth centre, in Breteuil, North Normandy, France.

The 40 young people will work and live together for 3 weeks during the summer holidays. During this time they will be learning and developing skills in performance, music technology and composition, filming and circus. Spending a week in both Breteuil and Chipping Norton they will learn to live and work together, from making meals to exploring the towns. They will also spend time in Brussels and at the Edinburgh Festival for which they will preplan their time via blogs and conferencing over the internet.

Their time together will be recorded with a video diary which will also reflect cultural differences seen through both English and French eyes. Upon their return they will make a short film that will document their experience. The English students will then return to France in November for a Film Festival, which will include their film.

As part of this project Chipping Norton School will be building two digital arts studios - one for recording music and one for film and photographic editing. Students will also undertake 20 hours of training in film, French language and music.

The project, costing just over £65,000 is being funded from the West Oxfordshire Network LEADER+ Programme, Defra, Chipping Norton School and money from European partners.

Ian Nolan, TE:AM Project Manager for Chipping Norton School, who created the project with French partners said, “This is a fantastic opportunity for both the students and the School here at Chipping Norton. We will be able to equip two studios with the latest equipment and technology that will be accessible to all students of the School. The project will involve upper school students, who will learn new skills on specialist equipment and then be able to pass this down to students in the lower school through peer teaching”

The TE:AM project, (Tour Europe: Arts and Music), took 18 months to develop from its original inception to its final approval by the West Oxfordshire Network Steering Group and the National Committee in France.
