An exhibition celebrating the creative work of a group from Doncaster is set to be unveiled at the Keepmoat Stadium this month.

New Beginnings from Bentley have created the exhibition which will open to the public on Monday 17 December between 3pm and 4pm.

The group took part in a 12 week project using film, animation and photography to develop transferable employability skills including numeracy, literacy and ICT and volunteer opportunities.

The project was delivered by specialist filmmakers/directors and editors Wayne Sables Project (WSP).

Funded by the Skills Funding Agency, the work was administered through DMBC Adult, Family and Community Learning service.

Participants were given experience in filmmaking, script writing and editing skills and have created their own short film.  They have also produced prints and photographs using digital cameras, cameras on mobile phones and even made their own pinhole cameras.

Andrea Parkinson, Team Leader said “This project has been a very positive experience for all involved.  They have looked forward to every session. Being treated as professionals they have been expected to make creative decisions about what they have produced.  The work is of a high standard and we are all really overwhelmed by the quality.”

Gavin Baldwin, chief executive of Doncaster Rovers said: “We are looking forward to welcoming New Beginnings and their exhibition to the Keepmoat Stadium.

“This is a community venue and we are always looking for new ways to work closely with different community groups and residents to help to make the stadium accessible to all.”
