Media and arts professionals support Sixth Form on heritage project

Our Sixth Formers in Year 12 are involved to deliver an exciting project which will promote the heritage attractions in Bourne. This week, they met with a professional graphic designer and photographer to learn industry tips and techniques so they can put their plans into practice.

The project is part of the ‘Future of the Past’ initiative, which has been supported through The National Heritage Lottery Fund where 13 partners across Lincolnshire are involving young people with heritage. Paradigm Arts is one of the partners who approached the Sixth Form at Bourne Academy last year to create a team of enthusiastic and dedicated students to work with the Bourne Civic Society to raise their profile.

Sean Hind, Lewis Jackson and Jessie Willmott-Giessler were chosen to work on the project and are all studying Business at Sixth Form, but individually they all have different strengths and skills that they can bring to the group due to the other subjects they are studying. Sean is studying A-level History and Geography, Lewis is studying Performing Arts and Geography, and Jessie is studying IT and Media. Collectively they have already made great progress with key stakeholders in the local community who are also just as excited about the initiative.

Sean has created a marketing campaign which the group are now working on over the forthcoming months so they can put into action. We are grateful for the involvement of Rob Pitman from Paradigm Arts who has been a great mentor on the project and regularly meets the students each term along with different industry professionals.

There is long-term objective that the groundwork our students put in can be passed onto future Sixth Formers to create a legacy that will benefit the whole community.
