Inbetweeners Teen Area

In a fantastic woodland location, the Inbetweeners’ Area (strictly for 12+ yrs) is ideal for teens who want to have a go at a whole range of music, digital, fashion, tech, media and music workshops.

Teens at Latitude 2019 used state of the art equipment to produce their own work, got hands-on experience and had a chance to work alongside industry pros.

The Inbetweeners Stage

The Inbetweeners Stage

Access Creative College are a nationwide college for the creative industries, offering young people the chance to study everything from Games Production to Music Production to Media and Events. How many colleges can shout out about having Ed Sheeran as an ex-student and patron?!!

Their Norwich College curated the Inbetweeners Stage at Latitude 2019 and showcased emerging and local talent across a range of formats.

The live acts included:

Finn Doherty; an alternative artist from North London, based in Norwich. His songs combine Hip-Hop grooves with alternative rock guitars and soulful vocal melodies. For fans of Bon Iver, Massive Attack and Lil Peep.

Emily Lockett is a singer/songwriter from Stoke on Trent who started writing songs at 12. She’s been played on BBC Radio Stoke, Best of British, CMR Nashville and Keep it Country TV, and made the “Listening Post” weekly short-list on Tom Robinsons “Fresh On The Net” blog.

Jordan Phillips represents optimism, with his catchy melodies and authentically raw and soulful style. Jordan brings his own unique spin to the world of acoustic music – one to watch!

18yr old singer songwriter Sylvia Daley – once described as “Taylor Swift’s twisted sister” – offers a strong melodic sensibility complemented by her collaborator/lead guitarist Arthur Foulstone’s atmospheric textures and art rock influence.

Poet and rapper SAF-S2E is a member of Manchester’s Young Identity; he performed in Breathe and Breathe 2 produced by New York’s The Dream Ring, and at Manchester International Festival (MIF).

Fashion Wonderland

Fashion Wonderland

In Fashion Wonderland at Latitude 2019 fashion and styling took centre stage. There were workshops and tutorials, including sharing top tips on Hair & Make Up with Hairy Poppins to learn to style yourself like a pro.

Or for something a bit different, there was Special Effects Make Up as used on stage and screen with Sophie Eade who has worked in theatre, TV and the Harry Potter films! Teens created their own uncanny or horrifying look using plaster casting, latex pouring and blood curdling…

Print to the People taught Silk-Screen Printing: teens chose a design, printed a t-shirt, and walked away in a unique creation. The [email protected] Team then helped them to personalise their creation. They’ll helped teens to create festival fashion, upcycle and personalise pre-owned clothes.

We were also joined by The Friend Ship; a project that promotes positive social change through the arts. Teens created fabric butterflies, with messages of strength and kindness on their wings, as symbols of hope to be sent to people in UK immigration detention centres and form part of a Refugee Week exhibition in 2020.

 

Digital Kitchen

Digital Kitchen

At Latitude 2019 we feasted our eyes in the Digital Kitchen. We joined digital ‘chefs’ to create and concoct fresh and tasty digital video from stop-motion animation, models, cut-outs and even people into live mix digital soup using VJ software. Teens saw their creative content served onto the big screen and scrambled into a delicious smorgasbord of digital delights! The Digital Kitchen also had guests including:

Beauty and lifestyle vlogger Helen Anderson, with a workshop and Q&A.

OKIDO

OKIDO

Artists, designers and illustrators from the OKIDO Artists Studio use many different styles in their work, from comic animation and bubble writing, to character creation and 3D typography. At Latitude 2019 the artists shared these techniques and more in their hands-on workshop. Teens brought some text that inspired them, a word or an image and used it to create a unique and stylish artwork with the help of our talented team.

Radio Caravan

Radio Caravan

Teens got themselves heard with our new Radio Caravan hosted by Future Radio at Latitude 2019. They got involved with interactive workshops, hosted their own curated people’s playlist, got the chance to interview bands and collected vox pops at the festival – joined the team to learn broadcast skills and created exclusive content.

 

Unreality Tent

Unreality Tent

Teens explored AR/VR at Latitude 2019 in the Unreality Tent for a host of virtual experiences. There was also a tiny 8-bit arcade! It was hosted by our AR/VR and VFX guru Kris Lavington-Woods who has made work for Netflix, Disney, Activision and Ubisoft.

Greenpeace Over The Top

Greenpeace Over The Top

Just next door (aka deeper into the woods!) Greenpeace returned to their log cabin at Latitude 2019. Teens joined them in their woodland camp for another Over the Top wild adventure in the trees. Wild play brought young people together with trees via scramble nets and zip lines to provide a high-energy action based fun loving experience.

They’ll helped teens discover a head for heights, while sharing information about their work defending the natural world and promoting peace by championing our wonderful but fragile environment. Parents also relaxed in their fabulous free trade coffee shack for some much-needed R&R!

Reprezent Project
