The Personal Profile Project: Ben Rivers and Charlotte Ginsborg

We are pleased to be able to present Husne Tekagac by Charlotte Ginsborg and Jack Stephenson by Ben Rivers, part of the 12 films made for The Personal Profile Project series by Project Art Works. Project Artworks is a creative intervention in the transition of young people with complex needs from children’s to adult services.

‘Project Art Works proposed that a short film, made by an artist, in collaboration with a young person and showing him or her in a variety of social, environmental and creative contexts, with and without family, teachers and friends, could positively inform the transition process. It would complement the other forms of documentation and assessment and illuminate the discussion between parents and professionals about the young person’s interests, abilities, attributes and needs.’

‘We will support artists of distinction to collaborate with the young people on making films that observe and record them going about their daily lives. Creating a more rounded picture of a young person, the films will be used to broker for them more relevant and specific support services to help enable opportunities for their adult lives that are tailored to their needs and aspirations rather than to what is available in a range of existing (non tailored) services. In Transit embeds creativity, art and film within the assessments, planning and processes of transition.’

Angela Kingston has written an article for APEngine, When artists are put to purpose, considering how the artists felt making these films. APEngine has also interviewed Ben Rivers, which is available to read here.
