Research output: Non-textual formDigital or Visual Products


Shakespeare Interpreted was a project in community arts practice in collaboration with Ardnamurch High School and the Three Lochs Book Festival, which ran for three months in 2016 culminating in a screening at the festival that year.

The key question was how young people might interpret Shakespeare in relation to their own life experiences using screenwriting and digital filmmaking and whether this might be deepen their engagement with the text and literary studies in a secondary school context.

A programme was designed to engage all 200 of the students at Ardnamurchan High School giving each the opportunity to express themselves and potentially have their ideas made into a film.

This is part of ongoing research into community arts practice using digital filmmaking.
