THE BIG RESET is a creative collaboration of the young voices of Waltham Forest aged between 13-21yrs, collating their untold stories on the effects of this pandemic. This will culminate into a powerful Documentary Film including, music, spoken word and art created by the participants throughout this process.

THE BIG RESET will take place over six weeks with two Masterclass zoom workshops a week. The project will focus on discovering the positives of the 2020 lockdown.

​THE WORKSHOPS Through our specialised workshops we will explore with the participants their perspectives on the positive and negative effects that these uncertain times are having on them. Working together we will develop each story, creating each individual narrative before putting this work to either Poetry, Song, Spoken Word, Monologues, Visual Art and Film.

THE ZOOM WORKSHOPS will be led by specialist industry professionals with guest Q&A’s from professional musicians, actors, writers & inspirational voices within Waltham Forest.
