Working with St Joseph’s Hospice

Students from Mulberry UTC have spent the last 6 weeks working with St Joseph’s Hospice in Hackney as part of the challenge projects. Students were commissioned to research and create a presentation on why an Instagram page would benefit the Hospice. Students also created a social media strategy explaining how the hospice could easily create an Instagram Page. In order to do so students work with Robyn Carylson a community fundraiser at the Hospice. Students also had the opportunity to visit the Hospice and meet staff and patients.

One group of students were so inspired by the visit that they decided to create an animated video for the Hospice to use on their website and social media. Digital Media students drew the content for the video, added the sound and edited it to make an incredible video showing why the work of the hospice is so important.

Robyn Carylson and her team came to see the student’s final work during one of the challenge project sessions. They were absolutely blown away by the student’s presentation, posts and video and have commissioned them to complete another piece of work editing a video which will be on display at the Tate Modern.

The challenge project was a great experience for all the year 12 students involved and it was great to see the health students and creative students working together on a project for a local charity. They are very excited to continue working with the Hospice.

At the bottom of the page you will be able to view the animation created by our students for this presentation.
