Aims & objectives > produce stories about community engagement > use these stories to establish and promote the CommunityStream as a resource for community engagement > encourage and support community groups in Portsmouth and Amsterdam to produce their own stories so that the CommunityStream resource becomes self sustaining > to have at least one of the productions combine Portsmouth- and Amsterdam- based students, and have both a Dutch and English version
stories about community engagement Portsmouth: Halloween Students of community theatre in CCI together with Dot-to-Dot (Arts) produced a Halloween performance/party/activity in an underprivileged housing estate. The story of the activity, told by interviews with the students, footage from the activity itself, and some comments from the audience/participants, is a valuable resource for others undertaking similar projects. Amsterdam: GraffitiStream Students Social Work organized together with Nisa for Nisa (Moroccan women for Moroccan women) a series of graffiti-workshops for Moroccan women. These workshops are filmed and the art pieces were exhibited in Amsterdam-Slotervaart en Slotermeer.
