On the Radar

On the radar this week:

  • The African Children's Choir
  • They've been visiting our little town this week and i went along to see them perform in the Baptist Church on Wednesday night . I was just blown away. Particular highlights included 'It Takes A Whole Village (To Raise A Child)', the can dance, and 'Sing' - the diamond jubilee song which they recorded with Gary Barlow earlier in the year. They're touring up and down the UK until January 2013 - if they're appearing near you, i'd definitely recommend seeing them perform. Beautiful.

  • The Unhate Foundation's 'Unemployee of the Year' competition.
    i haven't entirely made up my mind about this campaign, but it's an interesting idea - Benetton are trying to counteract the stereotypes applied to unemployed people under the age of 30 (with this video) while offering  the chance to win money to invest in a creative project or business endeavor.

  • See Me's 'What's On Your Mind?' resources
    A series of activities and ideas to help explore ideas of emotional well-being and mental health with young people. (Thanks to Stewart Cutler for the heads-up.)

  • See-Through Fashion video by Create Paisley
    A short film made by the young people of Create in Paisley, looking at the impact of labels and judging by appearances, which was shown at the Paisley launch of the Scottish Mental Health Arts & Film Festival. It's jolly well done!

  • Homeland
    Last but not least, the second series of Homeland started tonight on Channel 4. i spent the week watching the entirety of series one for the second time (because my mum hadn't seen it before) and am well and truly sucked in once again! Brilliant viewing. 

So there. What's been catching your attention this week?
