Echo’s Bones Call For Participants Aged 15-21
Are you an autistic young person aged 15-21 living in north Dublin and interested in creative writing, acting, or filmmaking?
Echo’s Bones is an ambitious, collaborative project to produce a short film with a group of autistic young people in North Dublin. Their starting point will be to respond to short stories by Samuel Beckett, set in Fingal.
Echo’s Bones will be developed through a series of workshops in Autumn 2020. These will begin with exploring the language and locations in the stories. We will also share and discuss a selection of experimental films made by autistic artists, writers and performers.
The creative team leading Echo’s Bones will be trained by autistic performer and former AsIAm youth leader, Eleanor Walsh, this summer. The workshops and film-making process will be shaped by the communication and sensory needs of the individuals who choose to get involved in the group.
In 2021 the selected team produce a film together which will be premiered as sensory-friendly ‘relaxed screenings’ in north Dublin. By making the film together, they will also explore what’s needed for a ‘relaxed production’, and this process will be documented in a book.
At the moment they are gathering expressions of interest by email from young people who are interested in participating. They will establish our first meeting when it is safe to do so, in person or online.
