Wellcome Collection’s Youth Programme aims to engage young people aged 14-19 through participatory projects that build knowledge, inspire creativity and promote confidence. Videographer Stephen Rudder, communications freelancer Josephine Finn and our Youth Programme team recently worked with a group of 17 teenagers to develop a new brand and trailer for our youth engagement projects. Here, Josephine talks about creating RawMinds.
The remit of the group was threefold: to identify a new name to replace Wellcome Collection’s “Young Creators” project; develop a creative identity; and produce a trailer to encourage 14-19 year olds from across London to join. I was enormously inspired by the group’s range of talents, their wealth of ideas and sense of community. The group felt utterly inclusive and effortlessly sociable. Every single member of the group contributed to this project.
