‘I am Redbridge’ is an intergenerational project started after we were approach by Redbridge Council. They asked us to help them mediate part of a community cohesion programme aimed at working with the young Muslim groups in the borough, to support, aid discussions and help challenge intergenerational misperceptions and alleviate gang tension.

As a result the young people involved created, narrated and starred in an animated interactive DVD. This insightful resource has since been used as an educational aid for youth and community leaders. Whilst using the DVD the leaders have access to contrasting point s of view on police, hoodies, gangs, prejudice and respect from a range of community groups including young people, police constables and the elderly.
