VOX PIX media project

The ‘VOX PIX’ media project has been supported by the Community Relations Council. VOX PIX has enabled young people aged 16+ to explore attitudes to civil society and policing in post-conflict communities, from the perspectives of their own experiences and that of their respective communities.

St Mary’s College students studying GCSE Learning for Life and Work took part in the project which was showcased at a special launch event in the Verbal Arts Centre on Friday, February 05 2016. Developed by the Verbal Arts Centre with support from the Community Relations Council Media Grants, the films will be distributed to schools throughout Northern Ireland to act as a resource for cultural diversity, and to encourage further debates involving young people’s voices on civil society and policing.

The VOX PIX project involved local students filming face-to-face interviews with speakers including PSNI Chief Inspector Tony Callaghan, Foyle Area Commander; Catherine Pollock, Vice Chair Partnership Committee on Policing and Community Safety Partnerships (PCSP); Roger McCallum, RUC George Cross Trustee and Charmain Jones, Community Development Officer for Cohesion,Sharing and Integration, Rural Community Network.
