One of the key parts of putting a project like this together is ensuring that everyone is on the same page – no mean feat, when everyone starts out on their own pages! Let’s have a look and see how we achieved this as a group!
For us, that meant putting a few ground rules into place. The young people who came along to the first night of the project had a central say in this, sharing a little bit about why they had signed up to be part of the project and what they expected to get out of it. We heard the young people share that they had come to share about their own faiths as well as learn about others, and this was a great place to start!
The group identified ground rules for the project like: respecting one another, working as a group, listening and sharing openly, as well as the key group staples of having a good laugh, making friends and picking up skills along the way.
One of the major ‘scenes’ of a film project called “We Belong to Glasgow” is always going to revolve around a backdrop of what Glasgow is, and what it means to people. So, we made a backdrop – check it out!
The next step was to start filling this in, what does Glasgow mean to us? What do we think of the city? What do others think of the city? Does that even matter to us?
More to the point, what role does our city play in our faith and religious lives, and where do we fit in that mosaic that is Glasgow? We answered all these questions in a really cool and creative way, and this is what we came up with as a group!
Fun huh? Keep your eyes peeled for the second part of our journey over this coming weekend and if you have any thoughts or questions about the journey we are on, feel free to get in touch!
