Amber Film & Photography Collective (Amber) was founded in 1969 with the aim of documenting North East England’s working class communities. Working with 12 primary schools in the North East, Amber will develop a programme of creative engagement in documentary photography and filmmaking. The project aims to increase children’s (and teachers’) digital media/ technology and creative skills, relevant to humanities and STEM areas of the curriculum; to enable pupils to explore digital storytelling; to address intergenerational relationships and community cohesion; and to provide continuing professional development for teachers.
