Beat This C.I.C are a non-profit organisation working in the community, delivering music technology and creative arts workshops to children, young people and adults with additional needs.
The Connecting Communities project is a collaboration between Beat This and Peterborough City Council, looking at a specific area of Central Peterborough and how it is perceived and thought of by young people living there. Beat This went to visit different centres and settings within the district of Millfield and New England and engaged with young people from different cultural backgrounds; they also produced some music and scrapbooks which had lots of pictures of the area they live in, and were asked to write down things that popped into their heads about the environment, the general appearance and facilities available or that were not available to them.
This video is more of a slideshow account of some of the opinions and issues the young people living there are faced with. The video was shown to councillors and people at the local council neighbourhood meeting.
