The Big Reset is a six-week creative course led by RAW Academy, the producers of East Side Story, with the young voices of Waltham Forest.
It answers these questions: How do we see the future of our society? What would you change? How could we use this time to re-set?
A group of 13-21-year olds are contributing to a powerful documentary film which will include music, spoken word and visual art. The six-week course is focussing on self-discovery, self-care and creative expression through virtual workshops and masterclasses.
The Big Reset encourages the exploration and importance of community connection, self-care, human spirit and creative collaboration. It will unlock, remind and demonstrate what we can achieve individually and collectively during this time of uncertainty and isolation.
