Into Dust aims to tackle the stigma, social isolation and phobic behaviour around and towards our LGBT community (both locally and internationally).
By working alongside our local young LGBT community (Space Youth Project) they have created a music video that highlights current LGBT issues. The objective of this music video is to both stimulate discussions around current LGBT issues as well as tackling some of them head on. They want to raise awareness to ongoing and unchallenged phobic behaviours and the mental health issues that arise when individuals are socially isolated.
In February 2017, three members of Space Youth Project worked alongside b-side team member, Molly, to write the film makers commission brief. The group laid out some ground rules around what style of film they'd like and what they'd like the commission to include. For example, the group asked for at least 2 meetings before any film making preparations took place. They also asked for the film makers to run a workshop around film making.
The plan is to take 'Into Dust' into local schools, colleges and Sixth Forms to open a discussion and raise awareness around current LGBT issues, phobic behaviours and social isolation.
