Floating Classroom is through to the final of the People's Millions Competition.
The group have applied for £45, 000 to develop and deliver four single week filmmaking workshops, called On the Waterfront, for schools in four Wards in Westminster North. Participants will be asked to research the history of the canal and their local neighbourhood, digging up the wealth of local stories and discovering for themselves how our part of London has changed over time. They will then develop short films based on these histories in which they will gain the chance to tackle all aspects of the filmmaking process.
To win Floating Classroom must win a public vote. The voting day is Tuesday 23rd November - phone lines will be open from 9am to midnight and a short film about On the Waterfront will be broadcast on ITV London Tonight between 6.00 - 6.30pm on Tuesday 23rd November.
Details are available at www.peoplesmillions.org.uk . The winner will be announced on 24th November.
Floating Classroom needs as many supporters as possible to spread the word about the project and vote for them. They are on facebook (Floating Classroom), on Twitter and on Flickr.
