Soft Touch won a tender from the Heritage Lottery Fund HLF) to make a film which encourages other young people to think about what heritiage is, what it means to them and how they can find out more about it.
The HLF has supported many projects which encourage young people to explore and celebrate the diverse culture of the UK. The idea of the film is to get more young people applying for grants that will help to open up our heritage for everyone to enjoy.
The HLF wanted maximum involvement from young people and our proposal impressed them because of our strong track record.
We worked with a core group of teenagers aged 14-16 in Leicester and visited projects in other parts of the country that had done heritage projects with young people.
